Joining us

Joining Thurrock Courts Players

How to join our group

You can join TCP either as an acting or non acting member. It is up to you and there are no  time limits or deadlines placed upon you. When YOU feel confident and certain, then the time is right. Start the ball rolling by contacting us via e-mail. We will inform you when audition nights will take place. Prior to that you may come to our rehearsals on either a Monday or Thursday night at either of the two venues below just to get a flavour of how we operate and to meet us for an informal chat but please let us know if you are intending to pop in.
7:30pm-10pm Grays Scouts hut Cromwell road RM17 5HG (park in Thameside theatre carpark and walk up alleyway to hall next to the karate club building) free parking at this time of day.

7:30pm – 10pm
South Ockendon methodist church West Road RM15 6PH (park in large carpark across the road which is free after 6pm)

If you wish to become an acting member, you will need to perform a brief audition piece of your choice in front of 3 committee members. Do not be put off by this considering the fact that you may be performing on stage in front of 300 people!! Again it is up to you when you are ready. Maybe you would like to get to know us a little better first ? It is up to you. 

For many of us the most difficult part was actually plucking up courage to make that first visit to meet the group at rehearsals. I can tell you that once you have made that initial step you will soon feel welcome and quickly settle in. TCP are a great friendly group of people who gather for social events too, other than related to the theatre.
Non acting members do not audition but still need to make themselves known.

Go on you know you want to. Just do it or you will regret it again and again!!!!

So What does it cost to Join Courts?
We charge £20 per year as a standard membership . This entitles you to a bi monthly newsletter , voting rights at the AGM and the right to audition for any play. This is paid April 1st. You can pay by direct debit/standing order

If you are chosen to perform a play there is an additional charge of £30 per production plus a script charge. This is to cover the cost of rehearsal hall hire
