WHAT IS BAREBOARDS?
Bareboards began in late 2010 as a way to provide members with additional acting opportunities in addition to our mainstream plays. Not all members have the time to dedicate to a mainstream play, which is about 5 months. There are those times when members are just not right for the parts available, so it can be a long time between gigs.
Our aim is to provide opportunities for members to view interesting work, get involved in smaller productions as techies, stage managers, actors and to present their own works as writers and directors.
Bareboards is open to all ATC members. Non-financial members are also welcome to submit their plays or register their interest to direct or act, however if chosen, you will be required to become a financial member of the Arts Theatre Cronulla. The membership fee is $25. Payable once your involvement is confirmed.
