Please understand, that amateur means "for the love of it", whereas professional means "getting paid for it. The terms have nothing to do with standards. The people involved are actors, and, whereas some people are brave enough to enter the professional theatre which is highly competitive and overcrowded, others take the more pragmatic approach by treading the boards in a well organised, and, and well run outfit such as this one. The actors at Wigan Little Theatre, of whom I am one, could well be professional, but choose to eat instead.When you go to the theatre, remember that there are good, bad, and indifferent actors both in the amateur and the professional theatre. That, presumably, are why critics make a living. Go with an open mind and be prepared to be entertained. The show you see might well not be to your taste, so the secret is to choose wisely to avoid disappointment
