To be involved with a Players production you don't need to be able to act, dance or sing. As well as our performers we have lots of off stage roles that you can get involved with too. From Box Office to Pyrotechnics we are sure to find a role suitable for you.
Box Office/ Front of House
The first thing that any theatre goer sees when they enter the venue is the front of house team. Our Current front of house manager prides himself on making the auditorium match the production. This helps immerse the audience in the show.
Without lights the audience wouldnt be able to see the actors but without a back stage crew the actors would have no scenery, no set changes and nothing to act with. The stage crew here at Watlington (as with most crews), are multi talented, we rely on them to rig our back drops and curtains, to change the scene in the shortest time possible and be general ninjas. Our stage crew also pride them selves on coming up with new and innovative ways to make our productions come alive. We are always after extra hands so please contact us if you want to be involved! no prior experience neccasary as our crew will happily train you as one of our own.
Getting involved with props can mean everything from supplying furniture and other objects to making the occasional bespoke item from scratch. Props are an essential element for a good show and someone has to be in charge and manage them. The props have to be in the correct place every night to ensure that the show goes without a hitch!
Stage lighting can take a sunny day and turn it grey with the press of a button. Our Lighting Technicians are always looking for new ways to use there knowledge to push the performances up a level using the lights available.
