Semi-professional shows are when the director, the musical director, the choreographer, the lighting designer, the sound designer and the stage management are played a fee for their contributions but the performers themselves aren’t.

Indeed, the performers pay for the privilege of appearing in these shows by paying a Show Fee of around £60 which pays for the hire of their costume(s).

A semi-professional production is usually staged in a theatre as opposed to a purely amateur production that is usually staged in a village hall.

A well put together and well performed semi-professional production can be as good as any in the West End.
