Happy New Year!

2017 Charity Poll

We have yet to decide what our chosen charity will be for this year and so we would like to give you guys the choice! Please go to our Facebook page to vote in our poll. There is also space for you to suggest a charity of your own choice.


A huge thank you to all who made the effort to attend the AGM – issues were raised, decisions were made and a new committee with fresh, creative juices and duracell-bunny-like energy was formed! May the force be with these brave souls as they take on the thespian challenges awaiting them with courage, vigour and spirits – I mean spirit!

The 2017 Committee is as follows:

Mark Paps – Chairperson
Samantha Keller – Vice Chair
Ashley Nader – Treasurer
Wendy Brehm – Secretary
Ralph Roos (Social Media)
Traci Scerri (PR / Communications)
Ayrika Hunter
Lise Wessels
Adam Brand

Membership Fees

A new year also means it’s time to pay membership fees again. Please can we request that all membership fees are paid asap. The fee for 2017 is R200 (less than R17 per month and less than R4 per week!!)  Furthermore, active students only pay R100 for the year! For those members joining from July to December, the membership fee is halved to R100 and R50 respectively.

Bank details are as follows:
Account: Franklin Players
FNB Branch Code: 250655
Current Account: 50400030074
Reference: Name & Surname

Please may we ask that you refrain from making cash deposits as the bank charges incurred therefrom are rather exorbitant! If you wish to pay cash please hand it to a committee member or directly to the Treasurer, Ashley, himself.

We are adopting a strict policy of “no pay – no play” this year. As such, no one will be allowed on stage unless we have a signed indemnity form and membership fees.
