Our next show

We will be returning to the Kirklands Community Centre stage in February 2023! We will announce our next production shortly, along with dates for the auditions. If you’d like to join Menston Thespians, or would like to be added to our mailing list for these announcements, please email menstonthespians@hotmail.co.uk.

Chaperones

Under our child protection policy, we require 2 chaperones at every rehearsal (12 children per chaperone). This means that we will require parents of children to apply for a chaperone licence and assist us with rehearsals as well as during the shows. Realistically this is likely to be one rehearsal a month if everyone is able to help. We’ll create a rota for chaperoning as well. If you’re in the show we may ask for help when you’re not rehearsing, but during the show week we know you won’t be able to help. Chaperones are a very important part of our productions, ensuring your children are safe and well cared for. If we’re not able to find sufficient chaperones, unfortunately it may result in a cap on the number of children able to take part. If you have any questions on this please let us know, and if you’d like to read our child protection policy, please click here.

Membership

The membership fees for 2021/2022 are:

  • Adults £15
  • Children £10

This covers you for insurance for every rehearsal and the show, and helps us to pay for scripts, rehearsal spaces etc as well. We will have membership forms available in September.

Costumes

We may ask you to provide some basic costume elements (trousers, white shirt etc) depending on the character you will be playing. As always we try and keep it to items we think you’ll have readily available. More complicated things our lovely wardrobe mistress Sarah will create or source.

Socials

We will have a few social nights during rehearsals and show week so please keep an eye out for announcements as rehearsals progress.

And finally…

If you have any questions at all, please email us at menstonthespians@hotmail.co.uk or using the contact us form and we’ll come back to you as soon as possible. We look forward to seeing you in September!
