Joining Encore Theatre Company

Encore Theatre Company is always keen to encourage new members to take an active role in the Company’s activities.  Anyone interested in joining Encore Theatre Company can be sure of a warm welcome.

Encore rehearsals are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at St Joseph's Primary School, Pontefract Road, Castleford.  Rehearsals for each production normally commence in February and September respectively each year.

Usually the Company stages two productions in each calendar year, in June and December, at either the Castleford Phoenix Theatre or the John Godber Theatre at New College, Pontefract.

Our current membership comprises people of various ages, who find their involvement enjoyable and rewarding.  However, depending on the choice of production in a particular year, we may have to restrict applications from new members under 16 years of age.

If you are interested in joining us, or would like to enrol someone under 16, please download and read the following Membership Terms and Conditions, and the Child Protection document if relevant, then complete the online application form below.
