Join Us

Why not join us? We are always looking for new members to come and join us. Whether you fancy treading the boards and trying your hand at acting or rather see yourself as backstage crew everyone is welcome.

Actors are expected to attend 2 rehearsals a week for approximately 10 Weeks prior to the production. These are currently (subject to change) on Mondays and Thursdays from 7:30PM to 9:30PM at Garforth Methodist Church and although taken seriously with much hard work they can be fun and a good get together. The Sunday before the play is taken up with rehearsals and the week of the play (dress rehearsals on Monday and Tuesday as well as the performances from Wednesday to Saturday) requires commitment and can be exhausting, but the buzz and excitement has you hooked and wanting to do it again.

Set- Building
For the 2 weeks leading up to the play it’s always all hands to the deck to try to create the splendid sets that have become synonymous with the GADs productions. With few trade skills between us but some DIY knowhow and hard work we always achieve the desired setting for a great play. If you have a trade, plenty of DIY experience or just some creative ideas we would love for you to join our society and help to create these sets……..many hands make light work!!

Make-up and Wardrobe
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.

Other Roles
As well as the roles already mentioned there are always so many other functions backstage that help to put a production together. Lighting, Properties, Prompt, Publicity, Front of House, and Refreshments/Bar Staff are some of the other responsibilities. This is a great way to be involved in the society and help with the smooth running of the productions.
