Acting

Acting

Putney Theatre Company produces between around 12-15 shows a year, plus other activities such as revues and rehearsed readings.

Auditions for all Putney Theatre Company productions are open to all adult members. However, you don't need to be a member to audition - you just need to join if cast in a production.

Most shows usually include several new members. Please note that all actors also pay a small acting fee per production on top of annual membership. 



We also run regular classes and specialised workshops by professional theatre actors and directors, which are open to all. From the craft of using masks in Commedia del'Arte to the art of creating tension as a director, our drama workshops offer it all! 

You can email us at info@putneyartstheatre.org.uk for more information.

All productions and auditions for all up and coming Putney Theatre Company shows are always advertised on this website - check the links above for all the details.


Directing

There are opportunities for both new and experienced directors at Putney Arts Theatre. We are always looking for people with ideas for shows, whether in the studio or main theatre. 

We also stage regular rehearsed readings, performing a play with scripts after an intensive weekend of rehearsal, to an audience of members and friends; these are an ideal opportunity for new directors to try out ideas or gain experience.

We also have showcases, these are for new directors, new writing and devised pieces in a format with several short pieces in each performance.

If you would like more information, or to put forward an idea for a play or reading you would like to direct, please email the Artistic Director at artistic@putneyartstheatre.org.uk, or call 020 8788 6943.

We have opportunities for new directors with assistant director posts on some shows, and also with our new writing projects overseen by an experienced director.
