DYMT Membership - BARNUM 2019

Membership to DYMT is by audition only. A non-refundable audition fee of £10.00 is required - payable on arrival for the audition.

We are interested in young people who wish to act in our productions and also anyone who might be interested in technical theatre and who would like to work alongside professional technicians involved in lighting and sound during our production week at Derby Theatre.

Our rehearsal period is normally from March to our production week which for BARNUM is Monday 30 September to Saturday 5 October 2019.

Membership guarantees a place in our next production.

Membership is open to any young person between the ages of 13 - 25 on 1st September 2019.

Our subscription for 2019 will be £135.00. This includes the cost of a BARNUM/ DYMT t-shirt for each cast member. Subs can either be paid through FIVE direct debit payments of £27.00 each month starting on 1 April 2019 or, if a one off payment is preferred, there will be a discount of £10.00 making the total subscription £125.00. One off payments need to be made at the first rehearsal.

In the event of a member of cast leaving the production, for whatever reason, no refund of fees paid will be given.

The membership fees go a very small way towards the escalating costs of a production. It helps to pay for rehearsal room hire and insurance which we take out.

Rehearsals take place on Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons. For our 2019 production we will have a short summer break and will begin final rehearsals again towards the end of August / beginning of September. During the final run-up to the production week we will have an intensive rehearsal period when extra rehearsals will be organised as and when is necessary.


We take rehearsals very seriously and all cast members are expected to be on time for the start of any relevant rehearsal. We exercise the right to ask any cast member to leave the cast if he / she is constantly late / absent from rehearsals. Absences etc put a much greater strain on other cast members. When a cast member is asked to leave the company no refund of fees will be made.

A commitment to the production involves a commitment to all aspects of being a member of DYMT. This includes being present, if necessary, at the get-in and get-out of the production, promoting the show wherever possible, and helping with any fund raising activities the company takes on.

We expect all members to act in a professional and respectful manner both at rehearsals and during production week at the Derby Theatre.

Failure to pay the annual subscription in accordance with our policy above may require a cast member to be excluded from any further involvement in a production.

By becoming a member of DYMT you accept to abide by the TERMS of MEMBERSHIP and to uphold the good name of this company at all times.

We reserve the right to terminate membership if the terms of this membership are not adhered to.
