Joining and Volunteering

Maitland Repertory is an unfunded community theatre run by volunteers. It aims to entertain audiences by producing plays performed by adults, young adults and children while at the same time providing members with skills for life. The theatre has a policy of active membership - because without active members we cannot meet our aims.

The talents and skills of members are used in many areas, such as the background work needed to put on a show - make-up, set construction, backstage work, publicity, wardrobe, newsletter production, casting, ushering and management.

Of course we also need actors, and auditions are held regularly. If you are not an actor but still wish to be involved, there are numerous areas where you can help and have fun.

Regular Working Bees each Saturday morning from 8am to noon. Maintenance of our 160 year old building and stage set building/dismantling is always needed at the end of each season.

All actors and volunteer workers must be members of the Maitland Repertory Theatre for insurance purposes.
