ActOne Theatre Group

Oldham & Saddleworth
37, Church Road, Uppermill, Saddleworth, Oldham. OL3 6DS

Act One is a leading Independent Theatre School offering the very best in Acting, Singing & Dance training in Oldham & Saddleworth. The company was formed in 2002 by Rebecca Wood, a Theatre graduate with a passion for musical theatre. From humble beginnings - there are now in excess of 80 students taking part in one of our specialised classes. All our students take part in spectacular Summer Musicals and a Christmas Pantomine each year, performed in their local area. There is also the opportunity to perform on the Main Stage at the Oldham Carnival each June. Children join Act One for very different reasons - some because they are born performers who need a vehicle for their talents, others because they are shy and need to build on their self-confidence. We welcome both into our warm, friendly and supportive environment. Our sessions are relaxed and fun and our results are highly professional. The children give their best because they are enjoying what they are doing and building a love and respect for the theatre.

BWS Drama Department

Worsley, Salford

Bridgewater School Worsley Drama Department

Cabarade

Manchester

The group is different to other "Am-Dram" groups and societies in the sense that we do not concentrate on one particular show per season.
Rather, we create a cabaret style show, showcasing acting, singing and dancing mixed with a high degree of comedy.We like to twist things up a little !
Leading roles only exist if required, and when required we like to rotate who takes them, this way we eliminate any "favourites" syndrome. It also allows for greater diversity within each project, the members can set their own goals of what they would like to acheive, and the teachers are tasked with preparing each member to acheive that goal.
Supported by professional industry teachers, each rehearsal and performance really does have a professional edge and quality about it. Our teachers have worked extensivley in the cabaret arena both with professional and amateur groups previously, all reaching a high degree of success on every level.
MEMBERS
The members of our group are over 18yrs of age and are from every walk of life imaginable. What they have in common is their sense of fun and 'no frills' approach to rehearsals. So you won't find any "ego's" pushing to take the limelight, it truly is a friendly group affair where the members support each other. Many new friendships have been created

Chorlton Players

Facebook  Twitter  

Chorlton-cum-Hardy

The Chorlton Players are a non-profit making amateur theatre group based in Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Manchester, in the UK.
Established in 1963, and formerly known as the St Werburghs Amateur Dramatic Society (SWADS), our performance base is at the Church Hall, St Werburgh's Church, St Werburgh's Road, although due to the current popularity of the hall, we rehearse elsewhere leading up to the actual stage rehearsals on the week before the play. The society has been running for over forty years and has had its fair share of ups and downs. Thankfully we are on a solid footing these days, and we often undertake some more diverse productions. For example, a few of our members have made some short films starring members of the society. These can be found on our YouTube channel!
We meet every Monday and Wednesday in the downstairs function room of the SPREAD EAGLE, Wilbraham Road, Chorlton between 8pm and 11pm, and we'd be glad to see anyone who fancies becoming a new member. We usually stop for a break around 9.30pm, where we can have a pint, a chat, and a chill. Please be aware that we always take a week or so off after a production before re-convening, so sometimes we won't be there.. check the website for when our productions are taking place. We have a £26 membership fee to cover hall and costume hire etc, although it is half price for unwaged people.
The Society Always Welcomes New Members!
We need dedicated backstage crew, and front-of-house volunteers, as well as budding actors, so if you have an interest in any part of the process of putting on the show, get in touch... it's not all about acting, it's about making friends and having a laugh!
Our current membership stands at about 30-40 members of both sexes ranging from our youngest at 18 years to our oldest who are retired, though our average age is in the 30's, so we are quite a young, and often somewhat irreverant, group.
Unlike many groups, we do not hold auditions, and cast entirely on merit.. ie. how well you read a part at the time. Being in the society for five years is NOT a pre-requisite to landing a lead role!
What Do We Do?
We currently stage five productions each year. Plays ranging from classics to comedies to the more unusual, and an annual Panto and a Hot Pot (a songs and sketches show with a theme).
Our season starts at the beginning of the year with our annual pantomime in late January. A few of our pantos have been written by members of the society, and all the stops get pulled for this one. A cast of thousands, smoke, light effects, pyrotechnics, and any technical wizardry the back stage crew can muster. Songs, dance, men dressed as women, women dressed as men. Good clean honest fun.
After that, we stage a play at the end of March, followed by our "Hotpot" show at the beginning of June. (Hotpot shows are a collection of sketches, songs and variety, all tied together with a theme...)Our summer play then takes place in late August, followed by another play in late October.
All Work and No Play Then?
Not in the least. After every closing night, we have a party at a kind (or unfortunate!) volunteer's house to unwind, drink copiously, dance about and be silly, and anyone who helped in the production in whatever capacity is invited. Aftershow parties are known for going right through the night! Add to that fundraisers, an annual Christmas party, birthdays, weddings, housewarmings, barbecues, Halloween, the fact that it is Saturday; any excuse for a few drinks and a laugh really. The social side plays a big part.
If you are interested, email us via our website or enquiries@chorltonplayers.com, or just turn up at one of our rehearsals, and introduce yourself... we don't bite!

Droylsden Little Theatre, Castle Close, Droylsden, Greater Manchester, M43 7AS

We're a friendly bunch here at Droylsden Little Theatre, and there are plenty of jobs to keep all our members occupied. If you want to have a go a treading the boards, that's great, but if performing isn't for you, there's still lots to do, for example:
Production Team
There's a lot of work behind the scenes when putting together a production; there's Props, Continuity, the Stage Manager, Lighting and Sound. If you've not done this before, don't worry, we can show you what to do.
Set Building
Fans of makeover shows: this is for you! Our sets can range from Dr. Frankenstein's Gothic castle, to the Prime Minister's office at No. 10. If you know how to use a paint brush, you'll be very welcome.
Front of House
This is a great way of meeting our audiences, and finding out what they really think. Each performance requires a House Manager, bar staff, and raffle ticket sellers.
Our postal address and email addresses are below. Please note that as the theatre is a charity organisation run by our members and volunteers there may not be anyone at the theatre during the daytime to answer the phone so please leave a message and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. The best time to get an answer is often in the evening between 7.30 and 9.30pm when we are rehearsing and getting ready for our next production. The phone will be answered in the evenings on the weeks of our productions.
You can use the form below for general enquiries and feedback or if your query is regarding a specific subject please send an e-mail to the appropriate address given below.
We like to hear from our members or the general public with any suggestions or feedback so please don't hesitate to get in touch.
