You too can become an Artemisian - part of our creative community!

Why not become a Member of Artemis Theatre in Bournemouth and volunteer your time and energy in any way you are inspired to do.

Whatever your age

Whatever your experience

Whatever your view of your talents

If you would like to be involved in creative theatre and are interested in any of the following, then we’d love to see you!

In an age where society has become quite isolated, our company offers  opportunities for individuals and their families to become part of a bigger creative family.

New Writers

Developing a script in rehearsal

Developing a script in rehearsal

Artemis supports original work, and if selected will provide a Platform for your new plays, Dance Drama or project ideas.

We will work with you to develop an idea, and projects with our professional Actors Company, and the Community Players.


  • Submit a synopsis of your play, and at least 3 scenes, or if it is a project, a breakdown of your ideas. You don't have to be based in Bournemouth to submit.
  • These will be assessed by our writers panel, and the Artistic Director 
  • If short listed, you will need to submit a brief budget.
  • You will then present your project to the Board of Directors.
  • If selected, Artemis will provide a platform for your work, subject to funding.

Initially, there may be a Rehearsed Public Reading by the Actors’ Company. Then the production Team will work with you through rehearsals to a full production. 

Writers we have worked with

  • Steven Murphy on Doorways
  • Alison Finch on Aphrodite and the Apple
  • Natalya Hammond Betts on Narcissus
  • Christine Aziz on Mary Shelley goes to Hollywood
  • Vincent Paxton on Thembones; Satan’s Fish and most recently - The Weevil inside the Mind  of Van Gogh
