KATS Needs You

Join us

Becoming a member of KATS is a great way of gaining invaluable experience of all aspects of theatre production; from acting to lighting, direction to scenery design and all things in between! In fact we have seen many of our cast members go on to enjoy careers in the performing arts.

We also host plenty of social gatherings so that if you are new to the South Hams or looking to make new friends then KATS is a fantastic way to get know the wide and diverse community of Kingsbridge and the surrounding area.

Free membership of the Friends of KATS will keep you up to date with occasional emails about productions and social events. We promise that no other information will be sent!
