Joining your local theatre group is a great way to be part of your local community. 40% of British people go to the theatre every year, the majority see local performances. If you are interested in music, dance and drama, then joining your local group has everything for you! And if you don’t have aspirations to perform, helping backstage with lighting, costumes, props and scenery are all extremely important roles.
Joining your local theatre group is a great way of meeting new people, especially if you’ve moved to a new area. Making new friends is important, whatever age you are. You will have regular social interaction and enjoy being part of the rehearsal process.
When you put on a play, or a show, you are using your imagination. Theatre gives you the opportunity to be creative. You can contribute in a unique way to what is happening on stage, and put your own spin on this.
Throw away feeling self-conscious, and imagine you’re back in the playground. Whether it is a play or a pantomime, theatre is great fun. You can immerse yourself in different characters, or enjoy living in a different world.
Being part of local theatre is good for improving your communication and team skills. You are part of a group that has to work together in order to reach a final goal. It’s a great hobby to put on a C.V. too.
Music, dance and drama are a wonderful way to express yourself. You can use your talents to share a variety of emotions and feelings. Using your own experiences to enrich a character will really bring theatre to life.
