INVOLVING LOCAL RESIDENTS
The next opportunity to get involved will be our 2023 Summer Tour, please join our mailing list to be kept updated.
COMMUNITY CAST - be part of the show:
This is an exciting (and free!) opportunity for aspiring actors or those who simply love to perform to be in a professional production:
The Community Ensembles will take part in workshops/rehearsals, led by cast members.
You will take part in workshops/rehearsals, learning:
Short sections of the show, songs, a dance routine…you may even get some lines!
Then you will perform alongside the professional actors in the productions at your local venue.
The opportunity is open to anyone aged 11+
If you would like to be part of the Community Cast for Romeo & Juliet this summer, please sign up via link below.
Community Cast will join either the Montague or Capulet clan, and will be featured throughout the show:
Opening fight sequence, with the opportunity to learn some stage combat
Capulet servants scene - parts & lines will be allocated
Prologue at the beginning of 2nd Act
Masked ball, a full company number inc. singing and dance
All crowd scenes
Finale inc. singing and dance
We use a team of Volunteer Ushers at all our shows.
Ushers will help during arrival & departure of the audience & the interval, at our performances in local parks.
The team will meet the cast, get a behind the scene glimpse at a professional show & enjoy the show for free.
The role is completely flexible - you choose the dates you would like to volunteer & the venue which suits you. Travel expenses will be covered if required.
Feedback from Participants
ELSF Participant Feedback
“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.”
