South Manchester AOS is completely run by volunteers so rely on and welcome your support.

There are several ways you could be involved at South Manchester AOS. Please see below for more details:

 
FRONT OF HOUSE

Our Front of House team act as greeters before our performances and at the interval in the foyer, bar/cafe area and in the auditorium.  Volunteering Front of House you’d be the first point of contact for our audience so it’s essential that you’re smiling, enthusiastic, trustworthy and can remain calm when things may get a little hectic!   Main duties include: Greeting our audience and making them feel welcome, selling programmes and raffle tickets and assisting our audience members around the theatre.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in – please contact us!

STAGE CREW / TECHNICAL TEAM

Our production and stage managers can always do with an extra pair of hands when it comes to getting into the theatre and getting out again. Depending on each show, we often require extra bodies backstage during the performances to shift scenery and/or set up props ready for the next scene. Volunteering as part of our crew team you’d need to be trustworthy, enthusiastic, have basic health and safety knowledge and can remain calm when things may get a little hectic!

 

Volunteers should be 18 years of age or over, volunteer opportunities for people aged between the ages of 16 and 18 are welcome but the activities are limited to followspot operator (show depending). No experience is needed as we will train and support you to ensure you’re confident in carrying out all necessary activities. Whether you can donate one evening or a series of evenings in a week, the stage crew team work together to ensure the smooth running of all productions.

PUBLICITY 

As each show approaches, we have a couple of afternoons when we hand out flyers around Manchester.
This role gives many people a first impression of South Manchester AOS so it’s essential that you’re smiling, enthusiastic and approachable.
