A lot of work goes into creating a theatre performance. It takes the work of many different specialised teams to complete all of the tasks required before the actors can even step foot on stage.

Everybody can get involved in the production of our stage shows in their own unique way! Different roles require different levels of skill, hours commitment and expectations. Talk to our committee about which role is the best fit for you.
