We like to encourage interested members to use existing skills and acquire new ones in such areas as stagecraft, directing, stage design, stage management, costume, lighting, sound and set construction. To learn more about how the company operates, please visit ‘Behind The Scenes’.
We work closely with the community, taking entertainments to local clubs and groups and, where possible, offering workshops and talks when we are doing a play which is on the school curriculum.
Members receive regular newsletters, giving details about productions and social events. There is an annual dinner and Shoestring also subscribes to the A1 Theatre Club, which arranges regular trips to top shows (especially in London) and other visitor attractions at extremely reasonable rates.
If you wish to participate in any activities for Shoestring, front or back stage, you must for insurance reasons be a member of the company.
