Curtain calls and cries of “Encore!” – the end to a perfect night at the theatre.
However it isn’t always the perfect ending for the ill, injured or elderly who can no longer work and now find themselves in need. That’s where ACTING FOR OTHERS steps out from the wings and into the limelight.
For every successful performer, there are hundreds of actors, dancers, musicians, lighting technicians, scene painters, wardrobe staff, front of house, backstage staff who are not so fortunate. They may be suffering from illness, injury, be caring for a child with special needs, or have reached an age when they simply can no longer work to support themselves or make ends meet.
Acting for Others is made up of 15 individual theatrical charities – each with their own remit. Between us we offer financial and emotional assistance and support to those in the entertainment profession who have fallen on hard times. The member charities dispense over £2 million to hundreds of people within the profession every year.
