Director wanted for Westruther

Berwickshire may not be Hollywood but there is still an opportunity for an aspiring director to make their mark in the region, as Westruther Community Players, a small but thriving community theatre group, are searching for a new director.

Over the past eight years the Players have staged a series of successful performances in the village hall enjoyed by enthusiastic audiences.

Initially started in 2003 by a group of enthusiastic locals with a shared love of drama, the group has gained a reputation for its ability to entertain audiences with a diverse range of material.

Two of the more challenging productions were John Godber’s duo of plays, ‘Bouncers’ and ‘Shakers’, which both involved just four actors who skilfully delivered a rich mix of comedy and pathos. The group was equally at home staging ‘The Church Meeting’, a farcical one act play which involved the full cast. The Players have previously enjoyed the services of local directors but are now looking for someone new to take on this pivotal role. Applications are invited from enthusiastic individuals who are prepared to give up some of their time to directing future productions. While previous directing experience is not essential, passion and commitment are.

If you don’t feel able to take on the director’s role, Westruther Community Players will always extend a warm welcome to anyone who is interested in joining this friendly group, either as a performer or behind the scenes. For more information email wcp2011@btinternet.com
