How to Join BCP

New members are always welcome whether you’re a former “thesp” looking to renew your theatrical activities or someone looking for a new hobby. No previous acting/crew experience is needed. All we ask is to bring enthusiasm and a sense of humour!

There are many avenues to explore from set design and build to directing and acting, lighting, sound, costume, stage management, make-up and props.

Full Membership covers you to be involved in all aspects of our activities over the season.

How to Join
If you’re interested in becoming a Member, come along to one or two of our Tuesday Social Evenings. If you like what you see, just fill in the form and you can continue to join in all the fun!


Auditions for all our productions include “Open Auditions”. Any non-member who is interested in what we are doing can come along for a part in a play. They may be in competition with some long-standing members, but parts are cast by the directors on merit and over the years we have seen many parts taken by people turning up for the first time at open auditions.

It is a requirement that actors are paid-up members, however starting in 2018 we have made Single Production Membership available to ease people into our group. We also have single production membership available for technical people.

Full year Adult £50.00
Full year Student £5.00
Single production Acting £25.00
Single Production Technical £12.50


BCP are predominantly an adult theatre company but there are plenty of groups in Banbury catering for the under 16s.
