The SSA boasts a large membership of both acting and backstage talents, and we cater for people of all ages, though for full membership you must be over 16 years old.  We offer the chance to see and, if you want to, perform, in the plays of Shakespeare and other writers of merit; it is also a great way to meet people and have fun.

The SSA has a group of supporters of the company, the “Friends of the SSA”.  As well as receiving our regular newsletter “Billboard”, Friends are entitled to attend our in-house productions and social events, get generous discounts on tickets and vote at the AGM.

There are two types of membership:

Acting  – £3.00/£2.00 (students & unwaged) per calendar month,  or a single payment of £36.00/£24.00 per annum

Friend of the SSA: £10 a year

Standing Order is our preferred method of payment as it makes accounting so much easier, but the Treasurer can relieve you of your money in other ways if necessary!  We’ll forward you our bank details to make it even easier for you………..

As an acting member you have the opportunity to audition and perform in any of our productions over the year. You will receive details of all our productions through the monthly newsletter, this web site and our Facebook member group. If you are interested you can also put forward a proposal to direct a production either In-House (at HQ) or a main house. You will be invited to all our In-House Productions and Club Nights.

Do You Want To Direct?

We are always interested in offers from directors, whether experienced or first-timers. If you are thinking about this, please let any member of the committee know and we can work together to make it a reality.
