Join our Volunteer Team!
Have you ever thought about becoming involved at the theatre? As a charity, we depend upon our volunteers to keep the shows coming and the theatre alive. We are fortunate to have people who are happy to donate their time to help us provide music, comedy, drama and much more to the town – but we can always use more help.
Volunteering with the Kenton is a great way to gain insight into how a theatre operates – from Front of House to lighting and sound. Duties revolve around being an usher, helping with the bar or box office, but there are also opportunities to get involved with the admin and technical side.
As a volunteer you will be an integral part of the Kenton, helping to provide an invaluable service to our audiences and ensure that every trip to the theatre is a memorable experience.
The time committed and frequency are entirely flexible, making volunteering with us really easy to fit into your life! Join the team, learn new skills, and bring your natural talent with you!
