The next opportunity to get involved will be our 2023 Summer Tour, please join our mailing list to be kept updated.


COMMUNITY ENSEMBLE - be part of the show:

This is an exciting (and free!) opportunity for aspiring actors or those who simply love to perform to be in a professional production:

The Community Ensembles will take part in workshops/rehearsals, led by cast members.

You will take part in workshops/rehearsals, learning:

Short sections of the show, songs, a dance routine…you may even get some lines!

Then you will perform alongside the professional actors in the productions at your local venue.

The opportunity is open to anyone aged 11+


Volunteer ushers

If you would like to get a behind the scenes glimpse at a professional show, meet the cast and get to watch the show for free then we are looking for a team of volunteers to work as ushers at each venue

“Massive thank you for letting me and Bash (her baby) be a part of your production. This opportunity came at such an amazing when I’m trying to redefine who I am post baby, so to make a come back and build my confidence meant the world! Being involved in your play gave me a glimpse of who I used to be and I loved it.

I’d love to be involved next year.”

“Thank you for having me as part of the chorus ensemble. It was a real privilege to watch and be a part of the show. It was truly brilliant! I look forward to potentially working with you and maybe the cast again in the future.”
