Good morning, Green Street Drama Society, Jane speaking. How may I help you?

Oh, hi Jane. My name is James. I've just moved into the area and I'm thinking about joining your group.

My friend Arthur - Arthur Jones - is one of your members and he recommended that I join.

Oh, that's great. James, we're always looking for new members.

Just to give you a bit of background, our amateur drama society has been running since 1976 and we currently have 80 active members, so it's a wonderful part of the community.

Do you know where we are?

Yes, I think I have seen it - it's on the university side of the river near the main Post Office.

If I remember correctly, it's on Green Street.

Yes, that's right, Number 117 Green Street is our postal address.

If you want to come and check out the rehearsals, then you should come to The Club House. [Q-1]

It's on the same road, just before the Post Office.

OK, got that. So what kind of things can I help out with?

We are actually currently looking for actors, oh, and male singers. We already have 3 female members in the group. [Q-2]

That sounds interesting, but I am afraid that I don't have any experience in acting.

Oh, that's OK. No experience is needed, because we will give you the necessary training.

We are thinking of staging Hairspray as our musical for next year. Are you more interested in acting, or singing?

Well, I would like to do acting. Most recently my friend played the role of Harry Bright in Mama Mia!

That was with the Footlight Players in Brighton, it was great fun.

That's great. Oh right, we also need people to lend a hand by running errands from time to time, mainly picking up props and costumes. Can you drive? [Q-3]

Yes, I've got a full licence and I have my own car, that won't be a problem.

Fantastic. Hm….what else….?

Oh, yes. I nearly forgot. When are your meetings held?

On Thursdays?

No, we used to have them on Thursdays, now we meet on each Tuesday at 7 pm. [Q-4]

Oh, I thought my friend Arthur said Thursdays..

Yes, that was actually for last year. And we usually close for our summer break for a few weeks in August. [Q-5]

So our first meeting isn't until the 6th September.

Okay, I will keep that in mind.

How much does it cost to join?

Let me just double check ..Here it is. It is 60 pounds.

I can also tell you that with the membership comes a club dinner which we usually hold just before we close for the summer. [Q-6]

Oh, and do you have any concessional rates?

For those who are unemployed or retired, it's only 25 pounds. [Q-7]

Last month, there was a discount for retirees, the price was only 15 pounds, but now it's gone back to the original price.

I'm working so that doesn't apply to me. I was thinking more about my kids.

Just to check, is this an adults-only drama society, or are children able to join?

Unfortunately, children can't join at this stage, we have an age limit of 16. [Q-8]

But they can join the local children's drama club. Would you like their contact number?

Yes please, that would be useful.

I have twin girls who are twelve and they really enjoy drama so I was hoping there would be a club for them.

That's right, get them on the stage when they're young!

The contact person is Maria George and her number is 564 73218.

That's great, thanks for that information. So, what types of plays do you mainly put on?

It's mostly modern plays, we don't really do classical stuff, like Shakespeare or Moliere. [Q-9]

I see. Do you organise any events on special days or occasions?

We do a Christmas Charity Performance each year, with the money going to a children's hospital. [Q-10]

That sounds like fun. I hope I can be a part of that.

Well we hope so, too, and I look forward to meeting you soon. Would you like to come along in September?

Yes, that would be great for me.

We look forward to meeting you then, James.

Thanks Jane, see you then.
