1. It's only for extroverts
In fact, a wide range of personalities find theatre production enjoyable. We have no primadonnas in our group.
2. I'm not an actor
Acting is only the tip of the theatre iceberg. A wide range of skills are needed to put on a good show, from painting to programme production, music to make-up, woodworking to wiring, etc.
3. I don't know anything about theatres
Very few of our members joined as ready-made experts. Indeed, it's our policy to give everyone the chance to try their hand at new tasks.
4. It would require too much commitment
It's true, our actors do have to turn up regularly for rehearsals, but other members of the society can come along as much or as little as they like.
5. I want to do something more exciting
Clearly you have never been involved in a stage production before!!
