The Janus Theatre Group is one of the great success stories of amateur theatre in Peterborough.
The Group developed from the Bushfield Tappers, a private dance school,in the early 1980, which started with just a half-dozen students.
Very quickly the group grew and decided to spread its wings into the production of Musical Extravaganzas,Pantomimes and Plays.
Every February the group presents a pantomime to an ever larger and more appreciative audience.
A true famiy occasion, a Janus panto is full of music, song and laughter,with bright costumes and explosive effects.
Between pantos, Janus presents Song and Dance shows, with special shows for the elderly and charity shows.
Janus has grown over the years into a spectacular, shining example of the amateur theatre spirt, thanks to all the hard work of its members on stage and behind the scenes and of course, the support of its audience,over the years.
If you have been part of that audience, then thank you.
We are always looking for new members to join our company.
We offer the chance for both experienced and newcomers to am dram the chance to make new friends & have some fun.
You do not need to have experience performing on stage just the enthusiasm to take part & enjoy yourself.
If you're unsure about learning a large amount of lines then we also have a range of smaller walk on parts & chorus numbers needing a large number of singers.
Many of our current company had never performed in public before joining the group but are now seasoned performers.
We also require additional dancers, no experience in dance needed just enthusiasm & the willingness to learn.
Over the past 30 years that the Janus has been running we have had numerous younger members go on to further their acting at stage school etc, & this leading to a professional career in theatre tv or movies.
Everyone has to start somewhere, & what better place to start than with a friendly group who will help you with that first step.
If you think you could be a part of the Janus Theatre Team, on stage or off, please let us know.
We always welcome new talent and good ideas.
Please call for more information.
