While everyone is encouraged to audition, not everyone is interested in performing in the shows - but they still wish to be involved in any way possible. No matter what your interest, joining the Langley Players in any capacity is not only a great way to give back to your community, but it's also an excellent way to get out there and meet new people. And the best part is, it's tremendously fun!
Jobs You Can Do
Here is some information on the many "roles" that can be played behind the scenes during any given production.
There are many different jobs that need doing in the theatre: Directing, Producing, Stage Managing, assisting the Director or Stage Manager, lighting, sound, costumes, props, program design, advertising/publicity, box office, concession, gala preparation, stage construction/decoration, graphic design, and many more… Most people don't realize how important the people who get these jobs done really are - no production would be successful without them!
You can be involved in just one production, or you can be involved in all three - every helping hand is a welcome one! We usually give on the job training or you can partner up with someone and share a project. It's a lot of fun and you can learn about the different aspects of the theatre.
