Welcome to Bispham CastAways – Community Theatre Group!
We are a local Blackpool Charity (CIO, Registered Charity Number 1182404) whose purpose is to promote community participation in theatre. We believe that everyone has a right to express themselves creatively and that doing so can help people in many different ways. Take a look at our mission for more information.
As a community theatre group based in Blackpool at the main church hall at Holy Family Catholic Church on Links Road, North Shore (FY1 2RU), we are a fun and supportive group that meets every Sunday from 6-9pm. If you are 16 or over and interested in acting, directing, script writing, backstage, sound, lighting, set design and build, props, wardrobe, makeup including special effects, front of house, marketing and promotion, or just want to meet a friendly group of creative people… then Bispham CastAways is the place for you! Just contact us for more information. We currently have members up to age 87 with lots of different decades represented!

Bispham CastAways are very excited to announce our next production… the classic comedy that was made into the film “Who Killed The Cat?”…
We will be holding an information evening on Sunday the 14th of January from 6pm at Holy Family Church Hall, including a read through and initial OPEN AND FREE auditions, with further auditions the Sunday after (21/01/2024) from 6pm.
Our tech team has lots of opportunities for anyone aged 16 and over who want to get involved with construction, carpentry, electrical engineering, painting, art, makeup, hair and costumes. These volunteer opportunities for members can create great additions to a CV, amazing photos for portfolios, and interesting talking points for interviews. We can also provide references for members who successfully volunteer with us. We are fully insured for members, so you just have to become one at £10 a quarter, however, if anyone is struggling to afford membership, the Trustees will work out an alternative.
