Handy with a saw? Highly organised and like to boss people around? Would enjoy watching a whole week of performances and be a big part of the production? Set builders, stage managers and light and sound operators are always needed.
Stage Management, Technical and Front of House
We are always on the look out for people who want to get involved in the following roles:
Lighting design & operation
Sound design & operation
Costume / wardrobe
Front of House / the bar
Nothing can happen on-stage without the people who work off-stage - the work of the backstage crew is highly valued at Putney Theatre Company. Many of our members have learnt stage management or set and lighting design and gone on to great things in professional theatre.
And "backstage" doesn't necessarily mean "behind the scenes" - the front of house staff are the first point of contact for theatre-goers, and are essential in ensuring the evening runs smoothly. All our members take part in front of house activities, be it box office, serving at the bar or supervising seating etc .
Members of Putney Theatre Company can be involved in any aspect of the theatre which interests them, on or off-stage. PTC membership can be cast in any Putney Theatre Company show (although you do not have to be a member to audition), plus you can get involved in a range of activities on and off stage, including rehearsed readings, workshops and social events. You will also receive our regular members' newsletter, Typecast.
We hold occasional membership evenings at which non-members interested in joining are always welcome. For more information about joining, you can call us on the number above, or email us. In your email, please state your name, contact address and phone number(s), and indicate which areas of the theatre would be of interest (design, front of house, acting, directing, etc. see Getting Involved).
