Chandler’s Ford Chameleon Theatre Company was formed in 1965 and their members are busy planning events to celebrate their 50th Anniversary.
Recruitment from Chameleon Theatre Company:
Do you want to be part of the Company that stages an Alan
Ayckbourne play or an Oscar Wilde classic or a rip roaring
Pantomime? Then come and join us at Chameleons.
We meet every Tuesday at The Ritchie Hall (from 7.30pm) to rehearse the current production.
Members not involved with the current production can come along to watch the rehearsal, join in a play reading in the green room, stay for the coffee break and then adjourn to the local pub.
We perform four productions a year in January, April, July and October with one production being a pantomime.
If treading the boards is not for you then there are many backstage roles that need to be filled for each production.
Some of the backstage roles are as follows:
Stage Manager/Assistant Stage Manager – responsible for everything that happens backstage during the run.
Lighting – plots the lights with the director to achieve required atmosphere and operates lights during the run.
