In BEDS, we work hard to ensure a friendly and professional atmosphere. Fairness and
equality are huge pillars of our society’s constitution, so we encourage actors of all
backgrounds to try out for whatever parts they want. We are proud to enforce a gender-blind
casting system and are one of the most diverse groups in Bangor!
We believe strongly in forming friendships and opportunities off-stage too. We hold weekly
socials, normally on Wednesdays and Sundays after our rehearsals, where we spend time
enjoying each other’s company. Additionally, we often plan activities together, such as
picnics, beach days, nights out, watching plays and films in Pontio, and our bi-annual black
tie parties.

Alma Nordstrand – President
Patrice Kerrigan – Treasurer
Mae Bernard – Secretary
Briony Collins – Publicity Officer
Megan Haf – Project Manager
Jack Robinson – Social Secretary
