Whether you would like to perform, or work behind the scenes on technical / creative / publicity tasks, we would love to hear from you. New stage show script submissions, fitting with our genre and ethos, are also most welcome.
We are a non-profit team, the South Devon Players was founded in 2005, and specialise in lively, newly written or adapted historical, classical and period dramas. mainly for stage, but we are also breaking into film during 2015, with filming beginning of our globally available crowdfunded internet film series of Les Miserables (from the unabridged novel).
Stage shows are performed three to four times per year, around South Devon.
All our projects are strictly suitable for all, so while mention of adult themes may occur, we do not incorporate explicit swearing or sexual content into our shows.
We are a non-profit team, and are looking for volunteers who would like to expand their portfolios. In return we can offer:
- access to networking and castings for further film, theatre, TV and modelling in the Devon area, as we work with external companies, ranging from student projects right through to Hollywood and BBC productions, who approach us for castings because of the quality of our members performance skills.
- Showreel footage, video clips, promotional photos, references, production stills, etc, released to a global audience.
- A tight team of friendly, energetic and ambitious friends who all work together in a hassle-free team to create amazing new work.
This summer and autumn quite a few things have come out of that, such as filming for Channel 5, being visited by the Britain's Got Talent scouts, performing in an international opera, etc. In the past we have also worked with the BBC, Disney, Smithsonian, ITV, and Sky TV. All costumes and scripts are provided each show, we are a range of people from those new to acting, through to semi-professional, and trained performers, everyone works together to produce a good show, and a pleasant supportive team.
We strongly discourage "cliques" and forbid bullying and elitism, so that it is a friendly, respectful, safe, and energetic environment for everyone.
