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 an annual fee. This fee also covers the cost of insurance, which is essential for any member of the cast or production crew. The cost of full annual membership is £20.00 per adult. Your own children under the age of 18 will be included with your adult membership, free of charge. Please complete a separate form for each adult and each child who will or may take part in any of our productions (but only pay once).
The annual membership renewal becomes due at the AGM held each year in May. There are two ways you can pay:
- Pay immediately here online via the secure PayPal platform. You may use either a PayPal account (if you have one) or your debit/credit card. This is the preferred method for new members.
- A one-off direct payment from your bank using the details that already have been or will be provided on request. These details will then remain on your account for next time. This is the preferred method for current members as there is no transaction charge to the society but it is NOT available for membership in order to take part in the pantomime.

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.
