Get Involved

Want to be involved with theatre but not sure where to start?  You could work in front of house, be part of the pre-production team, assist backstage or attend one of our working bees.  There are many opportunities to get involved, learn new skills and make new friends.   Contact us at STAG if you have an interest in theatre but not sure where to start.

Front of House

Are you a people person then front-of-house is for you. Duties include preparation of the theatre prior to a performance, greeting patrons, selling drinks and confectionery, program sales and ushering.  You will be part of a friendly team that is an integral part of any production.,  Performances times are normally Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 2pm.  Help with one or help with all.

Working Bees

We hold regular working bees.  It is an opportunity to freely walk around the theatre – from the props room, to the under stage storage and all areas inbetween.   Get to see the full working of a theatre and while you are there lend a hand with a bit of gardening, some painting, stacking props, placing chairs and generally making sure the theatre is ready for it’s next production.  Help for an hour or stay for the day either way you get great conversation and a free lunch!

Pre-Production and Backstage

Do you have an interest in the creative process of putting a play together, then join our Pre-Production or Backstage teams.   Work with some talented individuals to contribute to the creative process of developing a production.  Opportunities include:

  • Rehearsal Prompt – learn about the craft of acting by being a rehearsal prompt. You attend rehearsals and assist the actors in learning their lines.  Be part of the action without stepping on the stage.
  • Set building – Every performance needs a stage and on that stage you need a set. The set builder designs and constructs the physical structures of the set.
  • Wardrobe – interested in fashion? Love history? Yearn to be a stylist? Then assisting with wardrobe is the role for you.
  • Stage Management – A Stage Manager supports and organises all the aspects involved in a production. From assisting in rehearsals to coordinating production night, the Stage Manager is required to be at rehearsal as well as each performance.
  • Lighting Design and Operation – Work with the director to design and deliver practical aspects of lighting the stage to communicate the intentions of the text and the director’s interpretation of it to an audience.
  • Audio Design and Operation – Working with the director, you will design and deliver sound effects, mixing, Foley sound design, dialogue, and music. Sound design is the final element needed to create an immersive experience for the audience

Interested in any or all of the above?   Then contact our theatre and we will help you get started.  Alternatively pop in on one of our advertised Working Bees – meet the team and let’s talk through the options.
