The Loft Theatre Company has been producing live theatre in Leamington Spa since 1922. Professional standards are our goal as our brilliant team of volunteers work to bring variety and the very best in community-based theatre to Leamington Spa, to Warwickshire and to our wider audience beyond.
We have six key teams that help run the theatre throughout the year, each made up of anywhere between 5 – 50 volunteers. We recruit on an ongoing-basis for the following roles:
- Lighting Technicians - create lighting schemes for theatre productions and work with teams to turn them from paper to stage
- Sound Engineers - build sound designs for different shows and bring productions to life through sound
- Props Assistants - produce props for our Main House shows which can include making, buying and borrowing different items.
- Wardrobe Assistants - use your sewing skills to support the local theatre wardrobe team
- Bar and Coffee Assistants - serve refreshments before, during and after the show to all our audience members
- Front of House Stewards - welcome audiences, check tickets, show them to their seats and help them have a wonderful night at the theatre
2-3 hours per week with a minimum period of 6 month's commitment.
Volunteering times are flexible and can include evenings and week-end.
