Becoming a member
PLOS is an all-inclusive society – this means we accept everyone, regardless of age or ability. Everyone who auditions for one of our shows will get the chance to perform. We’re a diverse and lively bunch and welcome performers of all ages and experience levels; we love welcoming new members into the PLOS family.
You can find more details on when and where we rehearse on the auditions & rehearsals page.
How much does it cost?
Just £35 (£25 concession) makes you a PLOS member for a whole year, enabling you to take part in both annual productions and the PLOS concert. If you opt to pay by direct debit, your membership fee will be frozen at the reduced rate of £30 for as long as you are a PLOS member.
Membership entitles you to free auditions, and reduced entry to all PLOS social events and fundraisers. You’ll also receive our regular newsletter, and don’t forget unlike other societies you don’t need to audition to join us.
If you would like to become a member, contact our Membership Secretary, Kate Chesworth, for more information.
Life membership is awarded to PLOS members who have shown years of dedication to the society, and who are rewarded with free membership for life. Our current life members are:
- Paul Aylin
- Jonny Clines
- Steve Corby
- Mike Elsdon
- Diana Featherstone
- Patrick Harrison
- Penny Hughes
- Kate Richardson
- Gemma Ronte
- Nicola Savage
- Veronica Stone
- Philip Shute
- Ben Waterhouse
- Michele-Debbie Welcomme
In order to keep the society running and to continue putting on shows at a professional standard we do ask that all cast members pay a show fee (currently £95, £65 concessions). This represents good value when you look at what it covers: costumes, set, props, band and much, much more. It also contributes to the hire of rehearsal and performance venues and a strong production team supporting you.
Directors, MDs, Choreographers, Producers
We are always interested in receiving applications from directors, producers, MDs and choreographers for our productions. Check out our future shows and if one of them piques your interest get in touch.
There are a number of production roles available for each show including assistant director, rehearsal manager, stage manager, wardrobe assistants, props co-ordinator, stage crew and publicity helpers. Please get in touch if you would like to know more.
If you have any questions or require further information on any of the above then drop us an email, we’d love to hear from you.
