Project Theatre



Our team is made up of people of all ages, backgrounds and with various experiences.  Some of our volunteers have joined us before, during and after theatre or arts training or employment.  


Many of our adult volunteers use their experiences in being involved in committees and decision making bodies from arts and community organisations to coordinate the running of our company.  

Project Theatre is governed by a Board of Trustees and has a Team committee of volunteers and member and parent / guardian representatives.  

In our Creative and Production teams we have a wide set of skills and experience such as youth work, directing theatre and film, workshop facilitation, technical skills, media and marketing expertise, vocal coaching, dance technique and choreography training to name just a few.  Some specialise and take lead roles depending on the project.

Below are just some of the roles involved in our company. 

We often take on new volunteers and roles can vary by project so this list may not always be fully up to date.
