Anyone Backstage?

To many, the world of Am Dram is a mystery – simply dismissed as “not for me, I could never remember the lines!” But have you ever thought of working as part of the backstage team, maybe with the Torrington Players?

These five prize-winning and original, interlinking monologues take a lighthearted glimpse into world of The Stage Manager, the Make-up Artist, The Prompt, the Properties Mistress and the Wardrobe Master.

Torrington Players have been in existence now for twenty seven years and have performed in excess of sixty plays at the Plough Arts Centre in Torrington winning the National Operatic and Dramatic Association’s Regional Award for Excellence on two occasions. The society recently ventured into one act plays performing at the prestigious Exmouth One Act Play Festival, the largest of its kind in the West Country. Anyone Backstage? netted the Players three awards, Best Original Script, Best Character Performance and, for the youngest member of the team, Best Actress.
