We hope you have all had great summers and are looking forward to the exciting productions ahead!
We are so excited to get this years panto, Snow White, started- with first rehearsals and auditions being this Tuesday 19th September at 8pm in Moira Presbyterian Hall.
These will be very informal introduction sessions and we want to welcome anyone who might have an interest in getting involved in any element of the production; be that on stage, back stage or front of house.
We will have another informal introduction session on Tuesday 26th September, also at 8pm in Moira Presbyterian Hall, so don't worry if you can't make the first one.
Moira Players- who are we and what are our goals?
Moira Players is an amateur company which was established in September 2017 when a small group of like-minded parents from Rowandale Integrated Primary School expressed an interest in forming an Amateur Dramatic Society in Moira Village and its hinterland. The intention was to create a community based group for those aged 18 and over.
We are committed to producing a wide range of quality drama, both modern and classical, to the highest possible standards. Moira Players try to offer our audiences as wide as possible a range of drama; some pure entertainment, some thought-provoking.
We don't ask you to audition to join the company and being a Moira Player Member is so much more than just having fun on and back stage. It's about having a say in what goes on, and we're certainly not afraid to welcome brand new members on stage to act, if that's what you're interested in. If you do well at the auditions for a specific play, there's no rule which says you have to have been a member for a certain time. Many of our productions involve those who have joined us very recently.
While amateur dramatic companies often concentrate on recruiting acting members it's also important to remember that those who appear on stage are but a small part of the overall company. If you already have an interest in the technical aspects of stagecraft, such as sound, lighting or set construction (or indeed you would like to learn), we're always on the look out for people who would like to take part back stage too. You don't have to be an expert to join us.
With very best wishes
Community Theatre Group
