Our yearly membership fee is £15 – all you have to do is fill in our membership form or contact us using the form below and you will be sent a welcome email with details on how to pay your subscription.

If you’re not interested in being in shows, but would like be kept informed of our productions, workshops and socials, then you might prefer to join our Friends of The Mendip Players, again simply contact us.

Why join The Mendip Players?

Well, the main advantages are listed below; you can:

  • Act in The Mendip Players shows or put your skills to use in the lighting, costumes or directing.
  • Get involved in our more social side: Summer Skittles in The Strawberry Special, Cider Tasting in Early Doors or the odd theatre visit.
  • Have a say in which show gets put on next (or even propose a show yourself!)

You also have more say in how YOUR society is run – you can attend committee meetings, vote at the AGM, stand for a committee position etc.

What does being a Friend of The Mendip Players mean?

It means we know you exist, and have your name on a mailing list of people who are interested in the following:

  • Seeing Shows
  • Auditioning for Shows

Auditions are always open, but once you have been cast and accepted a role in a show you would then need to become a member. This means filling in a  membership form and paying subscription fees, which go towards hiring the Draycott Memorial Hall, costumes, scripts and performance fees.
