Thank you volunteers (Front of House Roster)

Youth theatre wouldn’t be possible without the tremendous support of our volunteers. Every year, an army of people come together in support of the stars on stage to fill rolls such as costume making, set design and construction, backstage crew, orchestra and front of house. We appreciate each and every one of you, and the hard work you put in to help our stars shine.

Here you will find the roster for our FoH team. Please contact Jenny if you have any queries.
