Get Involved

Want to get more involved in theatre? Take a look and see how you can. We can keep you updated on the latest auditions, point you in the right direction to join local performing arts and dance groups AND we want to hear from you if you have some spare time and would like to get involved behind the scenes.


Volunteering at our theatres can be very rewarding and great fun. You don’t need to commit a lot of time to be a really big help. We are looking for volunteers to help in many areas including ushering, backstage, technical, maintenance and promotional support. If you fancy getting involved at either of our venues please give us a call or pop in to see us at the Lighthouse Theatre or you can email us at enquiries@lighthousetheatre.co.uk – we’d love to meet you.
