Get involved, meet new people and find a home for your talents

We are nothing without our theatre members and are always ready to welcome new faces regardless of your experience of local theatre. It's not just about acting either - there's an awful lot that goes into staging a production which doesn't involve being on stage.

If you don't fancy performing to the audience why not try your hand back stage - with lights, sound, or costumes, or there's prompting, directing and stage management, or play selection and casting. Alternatively you can put your people skills to work in the front of house team, on the bar or helping with social events. You'll be amazed at the contribution you can make to our community. 

You can fill out a membership application at the theatre or download the form below and email

We would love to count you as one of our valued members.


Players Youth Theatre

Workshops held on Saturdays 10.00 am – 12.00 pm Ages 12 to 18 (inclusive). Class limited to 15.

Director and assistants all DBS checked

Players Youth Theatre offers you the opportunity to learn about all aspects of drama and theatre. As a member you will train as an actor, learn about stage craft and production elements and have the opportunity to learn from an experienced actor and trained tutor. You will be taught a range of acting skills and learn how to use voice, movement and mime as well as rehearsal techniques.


We are very lucky to have secured a new professional tutor, Neil Rowland, who has extensive experience in working with young people and leading workshops and is currently working at Xaverian College. Professionally, he has had various roles in TV dramas, in commercials and on the stage, as well as occasionally appearing on stage as part of a comedy troupe.


Neil will take the first workshop this year on November 6th Sessions will be on Saturday mornings from 10.00-12.00 and there will be 6 sessions before Christmas. The normal cost will be £10; however, for this half term, we are offering the first two as taster sessions free of charge, after which there will be a charge of £10.00 for each of the next four which can be paid on arrival. In future, we will be asking for a half term’s fees to be paid in advance. There will be 15 places available to begin with. 


Please complete and submit the form to the membership secretary as soon as possible to avoid missing out!
