Become A Member!

Members are a vital part of the The Little Shakespeare Company (LSC). We invite any child between the ages of 8 to 18 to join the company and take advantage of the drama classes, summer camps and workshops that the company will be running. In addition, members have the opportunity to be in the cast when we put on shows or performances.

Please note that an audition will be required to become a member of LSC. This is to allow the Company to assess whether members are ready to join LSC and to take part in the productions or whether the auditionee requires extra support before joining LSC.

Membership of LSC for 2017 costs just £20 per person per annum and for this, members will receive:
regular updates on classes/workshops/shows (via email, newsletter, Facebook and/or Twitter);
entry into a lottery for free tickets to LSC productions;
branded clothing;
“stars” (or other badges) for each performance undertaken.

Further, at additional, discounted cost, members will gain:
access to one-to-one tuition or mentoring;
access to external audition preparation;
access to masterclasses;
access to Van Rensburg Artist Management agency, with the opportunity to audition for external roles.
