Geoffrey Whitworth Theatre Club

Thinking of joining the Geoffrey Whitworth Theatre Club?    

New acting members are always welcome and we take pride in the opportunities we provide for both our existing acting members and newcomers to flex their skills and challenge themselves to new heights.  Acting membership for senior productions is open to anyone over 16 years of age but the GWT also has a thriving Youth Group for over 11s - please click here for further details

Actors are, however, just the visible tip of the vast iceberg that is the team which creates a production. There are many other ways for members to get involved: props, costumes, make-up, set design, building, painting, sound, lighting, bar, coffee bar, front of house, box office – the list is seemingly endless!

Once you are a member, you can get involved in any of the activities at the theatre. 

Benefits of membership include:

·  The right to perform in any production or to take part as production crew

·  Reduced seat prices

·  Priority booking for the whole season

·  Monthly Club magazine ‘Whitwords’

 

There are many other advantages of becoming a GWT Club member, so click here for a Membership Form.

 

Auditions

Auditions are held over two weekends in June and July each year for the following season's productions.  They are advertised in the Club magazine 'Whitwords' and in the 'News' section of this website.  All-comers are welcome, but actors who accept parts are required top become memebrs of the GWT Club.   

 

Rehearsals
Rehearsals for each production usually take place for 6-7 weeks prior to performance on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7.45pm, with some Sunday runs required nearer to the date of performance.  Initial rehearsals are held in the theatre’s rehearsal studio then move onto the stage for the three weeks leading up to the week of performances.
