Any person wishing to take part in a production, whether on stage or off, will be asked to become a member of the society and contribute to the running costs* by paying either an annual or a single production fee. This fee also covers the cost of insurance, which is essential for any member of the cast or production crew. The annual membership renewal becomes due at the AGM held each year in May.
We have provided a number of ways for you to pay:
- Download and fill in our Printable Membership Form and bring it with you to the AGM, together with your cash or cheque (payable to Faringdon Dramatic Society).
- Fill in the Online Membership Form below then log in separately to your own bank and make a one-off direct payment to Lloyds TSB using the details that already have been or will be provided on request. Or if you prefer, our regular members might like to set up an annual standing order payment dated for the 1st May each year. There are no bank charges for paying by this method. This is the preferred method if you miss paying at the AGM.
- Fill in the Online Membership Form below then pay immediately online via PayPal or your debit/credit card using the links provided. Please note that we lose money in bank charges (£1.05-1.56) if you pay by this method.
* Faringdon Dramatic Society FDS is an amateur theatre group and a non-profit organisation. All money received from membership fees, ticket and bar sales, and the occasional donation is used to cover the running costs of our productions. The greatest expenditure is for venue hire for both rehearsals and performances, copyright licensing, and insurance. Other expenses include staging, lighting, costumes, and props.
