Beginners on Stage

The group is NOT, as the name might suggest, about performance and no-one will be asked to get up and act.

The object of “Beginners on Stage” is to get us to look at, think about and discuss all aspects of theatre. This includes plays, playwrights, actors, directors, stage skills, sets, props – the list is almost endless. It’s not just to increase our knowledge base but, perhaps, also to give us a wider view and perspective on something which has a dramatic effect (excuse the pun) on all of our lives.

We are not just going to read plays – we are going to find out how and why they are written, how they’re presented, why they make us laugh or cry and how they relate to us in our everyday lives.

The group will meet monthly on the 4th Friday of the month, 10:30-12:30.
