Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the big red curtain? Have you ever wanted to get a insight into the backstage workings of a professional theatre?

We’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join our backstage team here at the Pavilion. The Theatre and Ocean Room are busier than ever, with events and performances taking place every week, sometimes every day! During the busy summer months the Pavilion averages nine separate performances a week!

From helping with load ins and load outs, to operating follow spots and other duties, this is the perfect opportunity for anyone with an interest in technical theatre to gain valuable experience working backstage at a busy venue.

We’re particularly looking for volunteers to join the crew of our summer pantomime PIRATES OF THE PAVILION that runs every Monday and Tuesday over August. There’s loads to do and even more to learn, and we would love to have you on board!

If you are interested, please contact our technical manager Dave Tozer here.

Applicants must be over 16 and finished GCSE education.
