Patrons


Why Become a Patron?

First of all, a bit of background:-

Poole and Parkstone Productions, or just P&P as most people know us, has been around since 1919 under various titles involving the names “Poole” and “Parkstone”.

During that time a lot of water has passed under the bridge, not to mention bombs and bullets landing on it. Despite everything P&P survives, indeed flourishes, with our three vibrant sections, P&P Musical Theatre; P&P Singers; and P&P Players providing thrilling entertainment throughout the year.

Our performing membership of about 120 to 140 people of all ages, and several generations of the same family in some cases, are cheerful, enthusiastic and energetic and this shows on the stage during performance. There is also a magnificent band of volunteers who provide invaluable work behind the scenes so that scenery, costumes, props, sound and lighting, programmes, refreshments, tickets, publicity materials, and website are all there when they are needed. It is a very large family, and that includes our audience of course, without which none of it would be worth doing.

Many of our audience members have been coming to watch P&P for a long time, remaining loyal as the faces of the performers change as time passes. Many of our audience come to watch and listen to members of their own family perform, many to see their friends and work colleagues. And some audience members come along simply to see what we are like.

Of course, apart from watching us and applauding us, all audience members are essential in providing the funds needed to mount the type of production that P&P do. This is why Patrons are so important to us in that they are not just paying members of our audience but their annual subscriptions provide more of that financial life blood that allows P&P to maintain the high quality that our audience expects.



Patrons receive free programmes at all P&P productions, interval drinks at the main P&P Musical Theatre shows, name included in the Patrons list in programmes and invitations to P&P social events.
