GEDS is an active amateur drama society which welcomes English-speaking people from all over the world. Our activities are in English, but many of our members are not of English mother tongue, and a cross-section of our audiences and membership reflects the diversity of the Geneva region.
Working together on a production can be a very rewarding way to make friends, learn new skills and have fun. GEDS members have diverse interests and talents: acting, administrative, backstage, bar work, carpentry, directing, lighting, make-up, painting, programme-selling, prompting, props-making, publicity, set design, set construction, stage management, sound, ticket-checking, sewing, sandwich-making, ushering - to name just a few! Some members have no experience at all when they join but are keen to learn - and our members are keen to teach. Others join because they love theatre and simply want to watch the plays and playreadings.
Why not join GEDS? Members benefit from:
- 20% reduction on tickets to GEDS stage productions, during a pre-booking period;
- Free entry to all rehearsed play readings;
- Participation in all GEDS activities;
- GEDS at a Glance: brief, timely reminders of GEDS activities
