Join SUP


Complete the form below and we’ll be in touch

We’re a friendly, sociable society, and aim for something to be happening every month: a social get-together, play reading, maybe a theatre trip – and of course rehearsals each week in the run-up to a production.

As a member, you are eligible to get involved with all productions and events, and will receive regular email news and updates. 

If you’re thinking of joining but aren’t sure if SUP is right for you, please come along to a rehearsal, play reading or social and meet us. You’re guaranteed a warm welcome – and there’s no obligation to join.

SUP isn’t just about acting: we’re always on the look-out for new members and fresh ideas, including support backstage and behind-the-scenes with technical crew, costumes, make-up, marketing, social media, events and more. What would you like to do? No previous experience necessary!

Annual subscription fees are only £24 standard membership – that works out at just £2 a month – or £10 for students and £5 for under 18s

Did you know? SUP does not charge a joining fee and does not charge a production fee, unlike other local am drama groups. 

Annual subscriptions are due each September at the time of our AGM.

We also offer ‘SUP Supporter’ membership for £42 per year (£3.50 a month) if you’d like to contribute a little more to help us bring community theatre to all – and an ‘SUP Benefactor’ membership from £60 per year to support our efforts. This is available to individuals and companies as well as members who wish to support our work but do not necessarily want to play an active role. Annual benefits including free programmes at our shows and an annual Benefactors’ Evening with the SUP Committee. Please email if you’d like more details or have any questions.
