Being a Member of The Bonn Players
opens up a world of possibilities…
- Be part of our monthly playreading group (currently held online) as we explore, discuss and discover new plays together. As well as being an opportunity to “try out your acting skills”, these readings are an important part of assessing the suitability, feasibility (and the selection) of which plays are performed on the stage.
- Join your fellow members for regular social events – such as our quiz nights, informal talent evenings and seasonal parties, such as the Christmas musical evening where we feast and sing Christmas songs together.
- We host regular workshops to improve our skills e.g. makeup, directing, speech, singing and acting.
- We have embarked upon a new Youth Theatre Group initiative, where we can nurture younger people in the activities of the Players.
- We take part in FEATS competitions and liaise with other like-minded English-loving theatre groups.
