We welcome any adult of any ability to come along and join our dramatic family, whether that is on stage, behind the curtain or Front of House.

Rottingdean Drama Society Events & Workshops:

For all our Active Members, we host social events each year so that friendships and trust are formed. We aim for one event in each season, perhaps a Christmas dinner, Christmas carols, a Halloween party, Bonfire Night flashes and bangs, a summer pool party, or a picnic.

We arrange different workshops to help Active Members build their confidence and gain new skills. These might cover movement, stage combat, breathing, character development or vocal exercises.

We also hold workshops on how to safely use the Society’s lighting, sound and other equipment.

Volunteering Info:

We welcome new Active Members all throughout the year. If you are new to drama or have years of experience, please do not hesitate to come along to an audition or a rehearsal to meet other Active Members.
