I've just seen this on the Bush Theatre site. Seems like an interesting initiative to me so I offer it up for discussion.
Over 60 and love the theatre? Nearly went for it but life got in the way?
bushcontenders is a new year round acting programme for everyone who could have been a contender. Members will receive £5 tickets to selected Saturday matinees and take part in an acting workshop with casts and directors here at the Bush following the performance. There is no charge for the workshop, all you need is to register in advance by calling our Box Office.
The first bushcontenders meet this Saturday after the matinee performance of If There Is I Haven't Found it Yet. If you're interested in taking part, please give the Box Office a call on 020 8743 5050.
