How to get involved

Your Theatre Needs You!

Would you like to appear on the stage again, or use your skills?

Or give yourself a challenge and do something different for the first time?

The People's Theatre is always delighted to welcome new members. We welcome both aspiring actors, and backstage crew.

The People's Theatre puts on around 13 productions per year. These shows are entirely delivered by our members. It's not all about acting, there are many different roles that need to be filled for every production including:-

  • Directing
  • Stage Management
  • Light technician
  • Sound technician
  • Props 
  • Wardrobe
  • Set design and building
  • Stewarding
  • Box Office
  • Volunteering in our Greenroom Bar

and many more.

So if you fancy treading the boards or letting your creative side loose backstage, please do get in touch.

We give ‘hands on’ training to anyone who would like to be involved in our many departments.
