Backstage with The Oldland Players

There's a lot more to putting on a show than what the audience sees. If you want to "tread the boards" then you'll be most welcome and we're always happy to have new actors, regardless of your previous experience.

But, if acting's not for you, there's always plenty more to do.

If you've got a technical bent, there's lighting or sound;

If you've got a design flair, or you're good with your hands there's set design and building; the latter is something the entire team gets involved with anyway.
