Get Involved

‘The show must go on’, they say. With 11 Main House productions and half a dozen ‘In the Bar’ shows every (normal!) year, BLT has opportunities for just about everyone to get involved in one way or another with our vibrant, friendly and  successful team.

If you are already involved:

For those already involved in running the theatre (FOH etc)

for actors (auditions)

To get involved, read about the areas (below) where volunteers make fantastic contributions to our theatre! In many cases, you don’t need experience – just enthusiasm! We welcome students or those planning on working in the theatre industry; the skills learned, and commitment demonstrated can be valuable in the jobs market.

Lighting, Sound and Video

Lighting, sound and video are at the core of all we do. Find out about them here:-

staged performances

As we come towards the end of lockdown, we are waking up the theatre ready for live shows once more. In the next few months we may well be streaming some performances so we need people interested in helping out.

filmed and audio performances

During lockdown we have kept active with several projects on Zoom and YouTube. Some projects may still need your help.

future performances

We are always keen to audition new actors for our shows. Please see our auditions page for more information.

stage management and backstage

As live shows are scheduled, we will again see our stage managers and backstage teams in action. If your post-Covid resolution is to get out, get involved and make new friends, then BLT is ready for you!

Whichever role you’re interested in, working backstage on a show requires a certain level of commitment, but it’s also a lot fun and a great feeling of camaraderie is built up between cast and crew.

If you want to know more about joining the stage management and backstage family at BLT, please contact Pat Jones. We would love to hear from you!

running the theatre

As we come out of lockdown, we will need help with renewing member’s memberships, restocking the bar and ticketing. We are hoping to announce the appointment of a new box office manager. We need to complete the project to implement our new membership and ticketing system.
