Get Involved

See the range of opportunities for getting involved with the Theatre 62 below. If you’re interested then feel free to get in touch at info@theatre62.org.uk

Acting

Do you enjoy theatre? Have you ever thought of treading the boards? Theatre 62 is always looking for new actors to swell the ranks. We need actors (male and female) of all ages and levels of experience.

Sounds interesting?  Why not come to an informal read through/audition at the theatre. Should you be successful, you would be required to attend rehearsals (normally twice weekly) for a couple of months prior to the production. The rehearsals are good fun and a chance to learn from other cast members.

You would be fully supported by the director, stage manager and all the backstage crew. We normally have six performances, Monday to Saturday, with occasionally a Saturday matinee. We celebrate the wrap with a small party in the bar.

Why not give it a go? We publish dates of forthcoming auditions on this website, with details of each character required. Scripts can be borrowed from the theatre to read through beforehand.

We hope to see you.

Backstage crew

Behind every good production is a small army of backstage crew keeping things running smoothly. These include set design and building, wardrobe, props and hair & make up.  This is a great way to get involved for those people who do not wish to act, or who are not acting in a particular production.

Support will be given, or you can let your artistic bent roam free, perhaps making/altering/choosing costumes, dressing hair or wigs and transforming the actors through the use of cosmetics. You could be seeking out a Victorian footstool, a pair of Regency shoes or creating a scar. Perhaps you could be painting the set, hanging wallpaper, building furniture. Why not come along one evening and see?

Directing

We invite directors to pitch to direct each year. Traditionally they research and suggest a list of plays which interest them. Out of these, we choose five each year to perform. Theatre 62 welcomes new ideas and new directors. Why not start by shadowing one of our directors? You would be very welcome.

Wardrobe

Theatre 62 has a recently refurbished Wardrobe (in 2013) with hundreds of costumes for all types of plays, from historic, wartime to modern. We have a Wardrobe team and would be keen for new members to join us.

Lighting and sound

Theatre 62 has up-to-the minute technical wizardry which enhances all of our productions. Any “techies” who would like to join the team would find a very high standard of kit and like-minded souls who can bring a world of marvels onto our stage through the wonders of technology.  Likewise, we’d really like to hear from any beginners who would like to tap in to their creative juices!
