Frequently Asked Questions
How long does my membership last?
Membership is valid for one Butter Side Up 'season'. Each period of activity runs from the beginning of June to the end of May and we aim to perform at least 2 full productions and several showcases/cabaret nights. The majority of our members sign up at the start of our season and remain members for the full calendar year.
How much does membership cost?
Butter Side Up membership costs £15 per season. Granting up to 12 months of membership, all members must re-register as members at the start of June each year. Full productions also require an additional show fee for all members involved on or offstage. This is usually £5 but is subject to increase for particular productions.
For those members joining close to the end of the season, a discount may be offered at the discretion of the committee.
What benefits are there for Butter Side Up members?
As a member of Butter Side Up you'll be welcome to be part of all projects across the season. From our regular cabaret night 'The Bakery' to full productions and acting opportunities.
Members have access to a private facebook group and mailing list where you'll receive early access to audition information and materials, hear about our upcoming projects before anyone else, and discounts for Butter Side Up merchandise.
Does Butter Side Up membership have rules?
Like most theatre companies, we do have a set of rules we ask our members to follow and expectations to how they conduct themselves at rehearsals and shows. Mostly summarised as "don't be a dick", you can see the full list of standards here.
Do you actually eat the end piece of bread?
Then you're the kind of person who might actually enjoy reading our governing documents. As a not-for-profit community organisation, we've outlined the legal make up of the theatre group, as well as details about finances, membership and more. If that's your kind of thing, feel free to take a look!
