Our productions do not just rely on a hard working talented cast along with professional, experienced direction but on the hard work, skills and experience of the hidden heroes backstage!
Our Stage Crew are those people in black that lurk backstage moving scenery on and off, mostly in the dark but just occasionally in the spotlight!
Our Deputy Stage Manager (DSM) who calls the cast, cues the lights, sound and scenery changes, making sure things happen in the right place at the right time!
|Our props team, who source, organise and bring on and off stage all those props that add the detail to scenes.
Every team needs a manager!

| Our Wardrobe team, who help dress the cast plus adjust and mend costumes throughout the run.
