JOIN COMMUNITY ENSEMBLE

REGISTER HERE

 

We are looking for local residents (11yrs+) to join our Community Ensemble. This is an exciting (and free!) opportunity for aspiring actors or those who simply love to perform.

 

You will: 

  • Attend rehearsals; learning short sections of the show, songs, dance routines and you may even get some lines! 

  • Get the chance to network with professional actors, creatives and like minded individuals absorbing loads of information about the industry

  • Have the opportunity to perform in a professional production, alongside the professional actors in venues around Waltham Forest and Hackney. 

 

Ideally, you will be available for all rehearsals and shows. This is because we want you to get the most out of this experience and become a real part of the Company. However, we understand that you may have prior commitments.  (We would require you to attend the SATURDAY REHEARSALS, DRESS REHEARSAL and SHOW 1, as these days are important)

We are absolutely delighted to announce that this image of the wonderful “The Twinny Set” photographed by local Photographer Marie Sleigh, is the winner of our photography competition.

 

The image has strength, boldness, naughtiness and sense of pure joy, which is exactly the sort of theatre and art ELSF are striving to make. We will be using it as the inspiration for our marketing and to feed into design discussions for our upcoming summer production of ‘Twelfth Night’ coming soon to parks across Waltham Forest, Redbridge and Hackney (tickets on sale soon!).

 

Marie Sleigh is a local photographer based in East London. She has a diploma in photography from the CASS School of Art, Architecture and Design and has exhibited widely across East London, including at the Rich Mix in Bethnal Green, theprintspace, Shoreditch and at the Shipton Street Gallery Bethnal Green. Her work focuses on the local community, identity and belonging.

 

This image also highlights the work of the Albert Kennedy Trust who support lgbtq+ young people aged 16-25 in the UK who are facing or experiencing homelessness or living in a hostile environment and support young people to celebrate their lgbtq+ identities.

Feedback for Community Engagement:


“Massive thank you for letting me and Bash (her baby) be a part of your production. This opportunity came at such an amazing when I’m trying to redefine who I am post baby, so to make a come back and build my confidence meant the world! Being involved in your play gave me a glimpse of who I used to be and I loved it.

I’d love to be involved next year.”


“Thank you for having me as part of the chorus ensemble. It was a real privilege to watch and be a part of the show. It was truly brilliant! I look forward to potentially working with you and maybe the cast again in the future.”
