We Need You!

Singing, Dancing, Acting...

It goes without saying that we need people on stage. So if you can sing, dance, act (or all three!) we want to hear from you.  You don't need to be experienced, just enthusiastic. Don't worry about performing, we've all been there and we'll support you however we can. We don't just want people to be centre stage though, we really need people for the chorus too, as they are the backbone of the society.

Sound & Light...

As you can imagine, without adequate lighting or sound, the performers might as well not be there, so we are also on the look-out for people to help out with our sound and lighting desks, and assist with microphones. This can be all be easily taught, so if you have an interest in this area, we'd love to hear from you.

Social Media...

Are you au fait with Instagram, or up to date with Facebook? If so, and you have a few spare hours a week, we'd love to hear from you.  We need to get our name out there, and entice people to come and see us, so we need to increase our presence on as many platforms as possible. If you're good with a camera, even better, as we love to show what we do to everyone.

Musicians...

Although we have our own pianist, we are always on the lookout for people to join us for our performances. Depending on your instrument and level of expertise, we can even work around you, fitting you in appropriately.  Sadly we can't pay at the moment, but maybe able to offer expenses. It would be great if you've done this before, but not necessary. If you can sing and play, even better!

Wardrobe & makeup

We used to have a huge wardrobe of costumes, but they were beginning to degrade, so now only keep a small amount. We need someone to help us source anything we can't provide ourselves, and assist with quick changes. Similarly, most people do their own makeup, but some need help

Writing & Directing...

We've been writing and directing our own shows for many years now, and while we have been quite successful, we always need people with vision to help us produce our shows. We aren't in a position to pay for big shows currently, so need more input from creative people. As an amateur company, we are unable to pay for these services, but if you fancy a go, let us know.

Building, painting, designing...

We always need people to help us to produce sets.  Whether that be initial design, building, or painting, every show needs the appropriate scenery to convey a mood. The sets have to multi-task so good design is paramount. We occasionally need to move the sets from one place to another, so if you have a van and a spare couple of hours twice a year, we'd be very grateful.

Front of House...

We like to think of ourselves as a friendly company and welcome help from outgoing people who would like to help front of house greeting people, showing them to their seats, selling raffle tickets, and working in our licensed bar.  If this is you, contact us soon! The only requirement is a smile!

Fundraising...

Always a tricky subject, no one wants to talk about money. However, you can't run an amateur group without funds, and lately, due to one thing or another, we are finding it more and more difficult to put on the kind of shows we'd like to.  We need people who have ideas and drive to help us achieve our goals. We also need sponsors, so if you can, please consider donating a small amount. Please help!

We at Chinnor Musical Theatre are always on the lookout for new members. The more members, the better shows we can put on and the larger audiences we can attract.  We always have room for singers, dancers, and actors, regardless of your experience, as we can always train you up and find a place for you. 

It stands to reason that you should be able to hold a note, since we are predominantly a Musical Theatre company, and although we are an amateur performance group, we still want to offer the best in entertainment. Some of our members can read music, some can't, it's not a prerequisite of joining us. We'll always try to include everyone in a show, whether it's on stage or off, without those stalwarts behind the scenes, there wouldn't be a show and they are equally as important as those in the spotlight.

Don't be put off by the idea of performing in front of people either; there is nothing like the reward of an appreciative audience to make it all worthwhile and we'll be with you every step of the way. We were all new once and understand just how stressful it can be, but it also a great deal of fun. So go on, give it a go - join us for a rewarding new hobby!
