Be part of the annual spectacle: Costumes, make-up, backdrops – there are roles for all comers

 
 
 

CENTRE Stage Community Theatre has been going strongly in Langholm for more than 10 years.
The annual pantomime attracts audiences of more than 1,000 people at the Buccleuch Centre and it is a popular spectacle for many people, far and wide.
As a member of the paying audience, you could be forgiven for not thinking about the production team behind the show which appears on stage.
You get caught up in the magic, the music and the mystery and, probably, you would be surprised to hear that there are normally more people involved off stage and behind the scenes than appear on stage for your pleasure and entertainment.
The 2018 production of Little Red Riding Hood had one of the strongest on-stage cast for a number of years and, it is hoped that the company will attract those faces again this year for more great performances in 2019.
But in 2018 some of the dedicated production team stepped away from the roles they were filling within the group.
Centre Stage Community Theatre prides itself in supporting the development of local talent, helping people from within the town, who have an interest in theatre and drama, to access training and development activities and give them opportunities to put this into practice during performances.
So, have you ever had this thought while watching a show? “I wish I could be part of something like that” or “I wonder how they make that work”.
Well, this year is the year for you. The company is looking for people to join to help with a wide selection of activities and roles.
Project
Are you someone who loves the thought of getting the power tools and paint out on a Saturday but could do with a project to work towards? The company has props, scenery and sets waiting to be made.
Do you have a guilty pleasure of The Great British Sewing Bee but can’t decide which garment to make first? There are costumes and accessories which would love your creative input.
Do you paint for pleasure or love trying the new make-up which is on trend? Why not come and give the make-up crew an additional member.
Big or small, on stage for a second or part of the production team for the whole week, find one prop in a charity shop or plan the lighting sequence for the whole show, there could be a role for you within Centre Stage Community Theatre.
If any of this is sparking an interest, they would really like to hear from you.
If you would like to know more please get in touch. Email info@centrestagetheatre.org.uk or on Facebook at Centre Stage Community Theatre.
