Our next show

Due to Covid-19 we regret that our 2021 pantomime will not be taking place as we’d hoped. Hopefully we’ll be back on stage in February 2022, however please keep an eye on the website for further updates.

Weekly script read throughs

In the meantime, we have a weekly script read through on Zoom! From pantomimes to radio plays, each week we tackle one act, alternating parts between everyone on the call. If you’d like to join us, please email menstonthespians@hotmail.co.uk for more information.

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 to go to our website.

Membership

The membership fees for 2020/2021 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!
