There’s plenty going on behind the scenes too.
Like other amateur dramatics groups, BaCStage needs a team of not only actors but artists, who design and paint the scenery, joiners who convert the designs into an actual set, lighting technicians and costume makers. Other behind-the-scenes jobs include prompt, continuity, make-up, publicity, front-of-house ticket collection/sales, set building and auditorium construction. We have been fortunate over the years to have such a team but sadly numbers dwindle when people move away from the village or go to college/university so we always have room for more! If you would like to act, sing, dance, hammer nails, paint scenery or faces, shift tables & chairs, counsel traumatized actors, prompt, deliver leaflets (the list is endless!) then please contact us.
