We are always looking to welcome new people to join our teams of actors, directors, technicians and front of house staff, please come along on a Friday evening if you are interested in being involved.
Season membership is now available, please download and print an application form and return to the theatre along with your membership fee, prices from £20.
Please note that the Saturday performance of The Cinder Path has been cancelled by the visiting company due to low ticket sales. The performance on the Sunday will be going ahead, and tickets are still available for that performance. We apologise for any inconvenience.
