To keep everything running smoothly behind the scenes, The Castle Players have various teams that look after different parts of the organisation. These teams are open to all Members (see here for more information on how to become a Member), so if you fancy being involved, get in touch with the Team Leader. 


Production Team (Team Leader - Laurence Sach)

This team oversees all aspects of every production The Castle Players put on. They have various responsibilities such as looking after props, costumes, organising rehearsal venues, booking seating, arranging the summer 'Experience', meeting with whichever Director is situ for the current performance. The list is long and there is a lot to cover!

Marketing Team (Team Leader - Chris Gibson-Bell)

This team does what it says on the tin - they work out the marketing strategies for all of The Castle Players performances. From poster printing, press liaison, ticket sales and programme putting-together to erecting the road signs for our Summer production, there is something for everyone in this team.

Artistic Programming Team (Team Leader - Dawn Trevor)

Programming deals with applications from Directors for productions that The Castle Players might want to perform in the future. They arrange a short-list to put to the Trustees and put forward their recommendations for productions to stage.
