We're lucky enough to work with a great team of volunteers, so if you'd like to get more involved in the life of the Theatre, read on!

We believe theatre is for everyone, and we're passionate about proving it. We are extremely fortunate in the number of enquires and requests we receive for volunteering with our theatre.

We see our Volunteer team as an integral part of our journey, and we are committed to enhancing the quality of the work we do by utilising your skills, passion and dedication in providing volunteer opportunities to the people of Greater Manchester and beyond. We have volunteer opportunities with our Welcome Desk, Mailing Team, Front of House Ushers and Costume Hire. We recruit for volunteers in August, prior to our Autumn and Winter season and occasionally on an ad hoc basis during the year.

We know that volunteers give up their time for lots of different reasons, so we also make sure we have the right support for you whatever your drive, whether that be to gain work experience, meet new friends or improve confidence.

“I love putting together the perfect outfit for our clients. Everything from an Alien Princess to The Great Gatsby via costumes for a production of The Importance of being Ernest and a Game of Thrones wedding. What fun!” 

Jean, Costume Hire


“I volunteer because theatre is something I've enjoyed from a very young age. Volunteering allows me to be part of the Manchester creative scene, network with others like myself and learn from the industry.” 

Leah, Usher
