JOIN OUR 2023 VOLUNTEER PROGRAMME
Our Volunteer Programme is now run on an annual basis.
This means that at the beginning of winter 2024, our volunteer programme will reset and we will invite volunteers to re-apply.
The level of commitment required each year differs from role to role.
In our monthly volunteer newsletter, there will be a call for what roles need to be filled for the month ahead and you can let us know where you will be able to help.
For our Front of House team (ushers, bartenders and box office volunteers), we ask that you commit to at least 6 shifts in a rolling twelve month period - that's only one shift every second month!
WHAT IT MEANS TO VOLUNTEER BY US
The Masque Theatre is a non-profit organisation and relies on the community’s involvement to keep running.
Founded in 1959, the Masque Theatre has undergone many transformations in its lifetime, but our core value has always remained the same. Currently, we are a first class theatre venue, hosting a variety of live shows and events, both public and private.
Our commitment to the community is to develop and utilise the talent available in the local and surrounding areas to cast all productions. The intention is to offer opportunities to local artists, both the experienced and the inexperienced, in the performing arts. From the front-of-house gang to the backstage crew - we are working on making a difference.
Our mission here at the Masque Theatre is to be able to create opportunities for adults and youngsters alike. These opportunities would provide training opportunities for aspiring artists in the various mediums of theatrical arts, and to provide a venue that offers fabulous entertainment to the community and its visitors.
We imagine a safe space for community members to play, where they are a part of something bigger than themselves; a space where members can connect and celebrate the art of storytelling and live theatre.
