Some very casual roles up for grab! Perfect for anyone who wants to know more about how backstage theatre works, or if you just want to be involved in this charming musical in a low commitment way!

- 4 Follow-spot Operators: for 3 performances each
We'll need 2 follow spot ops every night and want to divide this between 4 people! Commitment is simply the three performances plus the training beforehand where you'll get trained and get familiar with the show.

- Lighting Desk Operator: for 3 performances
You'll be operating the lights from the "tech box" and the deputy stage manager will give you all the cues over cans. We'll work out which 3 performances you'll be operating beforehand. You also need to shadow our lighting designer for dress rehearsal/one performance before doing it.
