ActorsEvery production needs actors of all types. We have open auditions for every production. Anyone, whether a current member or not, can come and audition for any part. See the diary for the dates of our next auditions.
CostumierIf you know about fabrics, looks and styles and can spot a bargain you would be ideal. Help us make the best of what we have in stock. If you have some making skills that would be a real bonus too.
ChoreographerAlthough Woodhouse doesn't do much dance, we do have numbers in our pantos and some other shows, and movement (e.g. fights) is often very important.
Director/Assistant DirectorWhether you're an old hand or want to try it out, we welcome new directors. Sometimes we have Assistant Directors who help out while gaining directing experience.
Lighting DesignerEnjoy fiddling with the electrics? Have an idea about shadow and gels, focusing and rigging? Then you might enjoy lighting one of our productions. We have a modest set up at our venue, ideal for gaining experience.
Set DesignerCan you make very little say a lot? We don't have huge resources, a few flats and some scaffolding, but if you wanted to help us get creative with our sets, and give us new ways to really use our space, then we'd love your input.
Musical Director/Song CoachSome of our shows, particularly panto, have songs in them. Could you help our actors bring their singing up to scratch? Other shows sometimes need performers to make recordings or play live.
Music CreatorGot skills in making music? From traditional composition to new electronic stuff, we could use your skills in creating original incidental music for our productions, either via recordings or live performance.
WriterInterested in seeing some of your work on the stage? We regularly produce and encourage new writing, showcasing one-act plays every Spring. See our new writing page for general info, and the diary for upcoming writing events.
Sound DesignerIf you know how to create and cue sound effects for live performance (or know a bit and would like somewhere to practice) then you could help us as we expand our sound capability this year.
Make Up ArtistWe really need some people who could help with creating looks for our casts, and maybe also help on the night to realise them. If you're a dab hand, this could be for you.
