If you have ever thought that you would like to get involved with staging a play on a real stage with real stage equipment, now is your chance. You may have been involved with amateur theatre before, or indeed may currently be, but feel you would like to do more. You may have always wanted to be part of a production but never got round to it. Well, this is your opportunity to really make a difference to our productions.
Stourbridge Theatre Company usually stages three main productions a year plus a number of smaller productions. Each of these productions need people to take responsibility for all of the roles mentioned in the poster. As is often the way, perhaps with organisations like STC, many of the roles are frequently taken by the same people, time and again. We want to bring in new people, with an interest in these roles, so that they will be able to take them on in the future. This could be for our next production, depending on experience, but we would also be happy to guide those with less knowledge to fulfil these roles.
We welcome anyone who has the enthusiasm and commitment to become involved in what is a very absorbing hobby. The amount of time that is involved varies depending on the particular role. For instance, the director of a play obviously needs to be at all rehearsals whereas the front of house manager, while being aware of rehearsals and maybe attending occasionally, comes into their own during the production week at The Town Hall.
Members of The Theatre Company all work together to ensure that at 7.30pm on the opening night everything is ready for the stage manager to open the curtains and cue the lights and sound. It’s not an easy task but it’s what we do.
It is envisaged that a new member, with an interest in a particular role, would work alongside an existing, experienced member with a view to taking on the role as soon as they felt comfortable. Ideally, we hope to get to a point where the production team does not comprise the same people each time. We would also welcome anyone who would like to take on any of the administrative tasks associated with running an organisation such as ours.
