Did you know that The Crescent Theatre is run by its members? Apart from a few paid staff, we are volunteers who have day jobs, are students, retired from paid work, or “resting”! The one thing we have in common is a passion for theatre. If you enjoy coming to The Crescent to see drama, shows, musicals, comedy, etc, then why not get more involved? Your commitment could be from as little as once a month helping front of house to three or four times a week rehearsing a play or helping with one or other of the myriad aspects of putting on a production such as lighting, sound, set design, set construction, props and publicity.
