We are looking for anyone with experience in these roles or who would like to learn to do these roles to put their hand up to assist in our upcoming productions.

Or if you would be interested in a future show, but not this time around, send us a message too and we can keep you in mind for next time.

Throughout the rehearsal process they assist in providing feedback to actors, often focusing on blocking and lines, making notes on where people should be and when.
