Become a Prankster!
Do you have a talent for, or an interest in, acting, directing, producing, stage management, set building, costume, prop making, sound or any other stage-related discipline? Whether you want to rekindle an old hobby, develop a current one, or you’ve just always had a hankering to get involved in amateur theatre but never got round to it, come and join us now.
All of the production and staging is carried out by members of the group. Staging a play involves a wide range of activities, including set design and building, lighting and sound production, costume and make-up and stage management.
We produce around 4 shows each year, and when we aren’t doing a show we are socialising. We organise many social events for members: going out to eat, trips to the theatre, karaoke, workshops and pub quiz nights amongst other things. Whatever your background or expertise, you are welcome – it is the combined efforts of everyone in the group that make our shows possible.

We produce around 4 shows each year, and when we aren’t doing a show we are socialising. We ask that directors are experienced with the Pranksters or another group, or have directed a Pranksters play-in-a-day/month, or been Assistant Director for a Pranksters show.

We like to think of our backstage crew as an elite team of ninjas!
Whatever your background or expertise, you are welcome – it is the combined efforts of everyone in the group that make our shows possible.
In the weeks leading up to the show it’s always all hands to the deck to try to create the props and sets that are the icing on the cake of our productions. With little trade skills or DIY knowhow between us, we are keen on increasing our set building team. If you have a trade, plenty of DIY experience, enthusiasm or just some creative ideas we would love for you to join our am dram group and help to create these sets!
To ensure our productions look authentic, attention to detail with hair, make-up and wardrobe are always an important task. If you have experience or would like to be involved in this back stage role come along and join us.
As well as the roles already mentioned there are always so many other functions backstage that help to put a production together. Lighting, Properties, Publicity, and Front of House are some of the other responsibilities. This is a great way to be involved in the group and help with the smooth running of the productions.
