Getting Involved with Hurst Players

There are many ways to take part in the work we do and we are always keen to welcome newcomers who share our passion for quality-driven, local theatre.

The first step is to become a member, which you can do by clicking here to download the membership form, which should be completed and returned to the address at the top. The membership term runs from 1st May and your fees will cover you up to 30th April the following year. There are four different membership options, depending on your situation:

  • Full membership: this entitles you to get involved in all areas of the theatre, including auditioning for acting roles
  • Family membership: full membership for the whole family
  • Student membership: discounted full membership (proof of student status required - e.g., valid NUS card)
  • 'Friend of the Players': this is a discounted membership for those who wish to support the theatre's work without taking an active role

And don't worry if acting's not your thing - there are plenty of other ways to get involved. No production could take place without a director, sound and lighting operators, a stage manager and backstage team, set builders, and the dedicated front-of-house and bar volunteers. Whatever your talent, there's a place for you in Hurst Players and we'd love to welcome you on board! You'll find we're an easy going group with a passion for great theatre and a desire to have fun. Why not give it a go?
