We’re always looking for new talent on stage and behind the scenes. If you are 16 YEARS OLD AND OVER and would like to join DarlingtonOS as a performer or backstage crew, please call our Membership Team on 07984139212 or use the membership application form below. Membership fees are just £25 per year plus a £12 show fee per show you perform in. There is no show fee for working backstage.

Full Acting membership will require you to offer a singing, acting and movement audition (movement is done in a large group, not individually) at one of our New Member Evenings held in NOVEMBER and APRIL which are made to be as relaxing and fun as possible.

Our usual rehearsal night is Thursday from 7.30 to 9.30pm at Stage Darlington. 8 weeks of singing rehearsals (one night a week) is followed by  ‘floor rehearsals’ with our professional Directors – these are an intense period of two 2 week sections where members will be required most nights to ‘block set’ each act of a show. Our Assistant Director then takes over where attendance is less intense (depending on what role within the show you are taking). There are usually some Sunday rehearsals when the Director is blocking the show.

Complete rehearsal schedules are always available in plenty of time to ensure you are available for the entire rehearsal period, we always do our best to work around people’s work and holiday commitments.

We perform at the beautiful 900 seater Darlington Civic Theatre. Our shows run for ten nights (often with a Saturday matinee on the first weekend). Opening night is a Wednesday and we close a week the following Saturday with a break on the middle Sunday.
