WBDS > Join
West Bridgford Dramatic Society is a club where people with an interest in drama meet, enjoy tremendous camaraderie and make friends for life - putting on really good plays along the way!
We have a good mix of members, aged from 17 to 70, some of whom have been with the Society for decades and some for weeks. During a season, we put on a variety of plays throughout the year ranging from comedies, through costume dramas to modern day thrillers, so there's something for everyone. We perform three full-length plays, in February, May and November, and an evening of one act plays in July.
Apart from a summer and Christmas break, the Society meets every Tuesday at 7:45pm at The Studio Theatre for a variety of activities including play reading, technical workshops, theatre visits and preparing for upcoming productions.
It's not all about acting. Here are some examples of the other fun and challenging roles we have to offer:
- Production manager
- Stage manager
- Assistant stage manager
- Set designer
- Lighting designer
- Sound designer
- Lighting operator
- Sound operator
- Stage construction hand
- Front of house manager
- Front of house assistants
- Wardrobe manager
- Costume designer
So if you've always been interested in drama, but don't know where to start, come along on a Tuesday evening to WBDS. Or come along to our next production and see what we do. We welcome everyone, regardless of experience.
We are very happy for any prospective new members to attend 3 sessions on Tuesday nights or Saturday mornings BEFORE making a firm decision to join, and then part with your cash.
