What are the benefits of being involved in a fun and energetic drama group like the Church Mouse Players. :>)

A good drama group is one which has the people with the perfect blend of skills, characters and personalities. Many people think that because they are not experienced actors or technicians, they do not have the skills necessary to volunteer with the Church Mouse Players. This is not true! We can use loads of help in a variety of departmental duties and we can always use more people who are willing to apply and develop their differing range of skills.

The Church Mouse Players is always looking for new talent and resource people for the various departments both up front and behind the scenes. The departments include: Drama / Acting | Costumes | Set Design | Lights / Sound | Promotions | and Dining Room. Whether it be on the stage, behind the scenes or even in the audience, there may be a spot where we can use your God-given talents. Somewhere that you can truly build upon your skills and let your light shine.

Here are some of the areas within the Church Mouse Players that may be able to use your help:

  • Publicity /Marketing - helping get the word out to the community of our up and coming productions and what we are all about
  • Education - mentoring, networking, project coordination
  • Mini Theater Projects - helping other community groups with their productions
  • Storage - Facilities and Properties - helping to categorize and care for Church Mouse Players properties and costumes and cooperate with initiatives to build new and/or better performance resources
  • Dining Room - decorating, set up, meet and greet, customer polling
  • Technical - backstage, lights, sound and special effects
  • Resource Inventory Coordination - help manage such things as a volunteer database/pool, set/prop resources and/or contact mail listings

You also might consider learning more about working with the CMP in more specialized areas. In the future we may provide mentoring opportunties in selected areas. Here you may learn skills such as:

  • Lighting/Sound Design and Special Effects
  • Play Production / Directing
  • Stage Management
  • Acting / Talent Search
  • Set Design / Prop Acquisition
  • Costuming / Makeup Techniques
