About Kings Theatre

The Kings Theatre is run solely by volunteers. We have a variety of theatrical company's/groups that hire the theatre on a regular basis, from the University of Gloucestershire, to local amateur theatre groups, to tribute bands such at Elvis, Abba and Robbie Williams.

When the theatre is in use our front of house area requires one person to run the box office, two people to sell programmes (if required) and to serve teas, coffees etc at the beginning and during the interval and finally two people to run our bar. At the end of the show we all muck in to clear up ready for the next show.

Training will be provided for all of these roles. We use Ticketsource for our ticket sales and Tabology for our bar sales, so some computer knowledge would be useful.

We have a great group of volunteers already at Kings but we it would fantastic to have some new people on board! Our volunteers age from 16 through to 78, so please come along and join us!
