How can I become a member?
You do not have to be a member to benefit from Gatecrash…. our short courses, mentorship, one to one tuition, audition prep and some of our performance opportunities are open to all. However, by being a member you will receive access to the weekly workshops offered by the company, more performance opportunities (some paid and some for development) and a discount on all our short courses and one to one training.
If becoming a member does interest you – you need to decide whether it is is Gatecrash Ignite or Youth that appeals to you in the first instance. Gatecrash Youth is open exclusively to students at New College, Swindon (as part of our ongoing residency there) and offers early level support and professionally led workshops for aspiring performers. If you are a student at the college and this is of interest to you please do contact us. Our adult group Ignite. There is no audition process. Simply contact us with your contact information and your previous experience and we will invite you to our workshops to try them out (there is no commitment to pay any fee until after the first session when you have decided whether you want to stick with us…. we hope you do!).
Our available spaces are limited to ensure that each dedicated and committed member is given the guidance and support they need as an artist (whether professionally or as a hobby). It requires commitment, dedication and passion for the arts and is an important part of our members development as artists.
New members are all actively interested in theatre, many wanting professional development and support, some wanting a creative outlet with other dedicated performers and directors.
Please contact us if you are interested in attending.
