In small letters far below, it added "show fee payable if successful."
Is this kind of thing normal now? Rather than sending children to weekly drama clubs with an "end of term" show every so often, they can just (probably, as I'm guessing almost everybody gets cast...) pitch up and 'pay to be in a show' now?
There's obviously no scam or anything going on, but I'm really curious, as I'd have felt the friendship and tradition that goes with an ongoing theatre group is a huge part of what theatre in general is about?

Helps to keep the ticket cost down, and reduce a little of the risk of ticket sales not being so successful. Also means that those who do more shows end up paying more than members who don't. And it helps with the timing of cashflows - it can take a long time to get ticket income back from some venues, and there are always a lot of costs that need to be paid upfront.

And, as I always say, amdram is a lot cheaper than golf.

If I can open it a bit more, please... the advert was for children not adult groups. Do people think it is better for children to be involved in a regular club where they can have fun and learn and make friends over time, or is it OK to just "sign on for a project" and probably get no development space? I'm thinking it depends on ages - older ones a project is OK, but how do others feel?
