FREQUENLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much does it cost?
At the moment the Pudsey session is free.
The swinnow session is charged at £4 per child and £3 per adult. There is a small membership fee which is altered depending on when you join. The yearly fee is £60 and can be paid in instalments. This is to cover room hire for this venue and also resources used. All and any funds raised by IPTC goes straight back into the theatre company to cover all general costs, costume, props, venue hire etc. No profit is made and no salary is paid to any staff. IPTC runs on volunteer staff so any and all donations are greatly appreciated to keep the company supported and growing.
Do I have to get up in front of an audience?
Not if you don't want to. Within the classes you will be acting out scenes with other members but if you don't want to be on stage at the big shows you don't have to. You can help out behind the scenes: decorating sets, doing lighting, doing sound work, moving sets between scenes, selling tickets/front of house, helping with social media, writing plays etc. The list is almost endless.
Can I just come along and watch?
If you feel you want to get involved but you are not sure, you can along and watch some workshops and get an idea of what is happening. If you normally come along and act and you just don't feel like it on a given night you can come along and just have a seat, watch and chat to everyone afterward. If you have a friend or relative in the group and nobody objects to you watching, you are also welcome.
