Membership of Edinburgh People's Theatre

Martin Downes

We are always keen to welcome new members who wish to involve themselves with any aspect of the theatre.  Becoming a member of EPT is easy and there are no auditions. Just contact Irene Beaver, our Membership Secretary, to find out more. You can learn about our Open Nights lower down the page.

You may want to join to act, or just to work behind the scenes, where there are equally important jobs to be done.  It's not all work though, as we also like to meet for social events each year.

Membership of Edinburgh People's Theatre is available in the following categories:

Patrons Mailing List

This is a free service in which the Patrons receive regular letters/e-mails with advance information regarding upcoming shows and special invitations to Patrons' evenings with EPT.  For more information please visit our Patrons page.

Bulletin Membership

This is for people who cannot take an active part in the club but would still like to receive the monthly Club Newsletter (The Prompt) and be able to attend EPT Social Events.  Fee for this is currently £10.00 per annum.

Membership of EPT

Becoming an active member of EPT entitles you to the same privileges as Patron and Bulletin Membership with the added bonus of being allowed to audition and take an active part in all EPT productions.  Fee for this is currently £25.00 per annum with an additional one off joining fee of £5.00.  In your first year of membership you are classed as an Associate Member.  This entitles you to the same privileges as Full Members with the exception that, although you may attend the AGM, you are not permitted to vote.

Life Members

Members with over 40 years service to the club, or who have made an outstanding contribution, are invited to become Life Members. We currently have 14 Life members and are grateful to them all for their loyal and continuous support of the club.

EPT Open Nights

EPT Open Nights are a chance for new, old and prospective members alike to meet up and get involved in the preparation of the next EPT production.  These open nights are usually held on the first Tuesday evening of every month (except during a show week) from 7.30pm to 9.30pm in our premises, 40 Mayfield Gardens, Edinburgh.  Why not come along and meet the gang?

Irene Beaver, our Membership Secretary, is often on hand to meet and greet prospective new members with a warm smile. Please contact Irene if you would like to come along, or to arrange another date and time suitable to all if you are unable to make it along to an official EPT Open Night.
