Get involved @BLT

Bolton Little Theatre produces up to eight plays each year and holds a variety of other events including acoustic music evenings, quiz evenings, comedy evenings and many more. But did you know that the theatre is run entirely by volunteers?

From serving tea and coffee to lighting and set design, there are many opportunities to get involved with the theatre and we are constantly on the look out for new faces to join us so we can keep this great venue running. Take a look and see how you too can help.

You can take part and audition for a part in one of our plays- you must be a member click here

Would you like to volunteer?

Front of House

The House Manager runs all the part of the theatre in front of the curtains! Sign up on the volunteer list of the notice-board. Training will be given and the duties are listed on the cue sheet in the box office. They include unlocking and locking the theatre, welcoming the audience, getting them into the theatre on time and showing them to their seats; liaising with the coffee and bar staff and helping them if needed; being available in the Foyer to help the audience and assist wheelchair members. The House Manager is the Public view of the theatre.

Interested? Contact Mark Pillar


Programme sales

A welcoming smile as the audience enter the theatre and an offer of a programme often yields a positive response and good programme sales help to pay for the design and printing. Come to the theatre by 6.30 and spend an hour greeting the public!

Interested? Contact Frances Clemmitt



Two people again are needed each night. The bar needs to be open when the audience arrives (about 6.30) and interval orders should be encouraged to make serving at the interval easier. The cast, crew and the audience also stay behind after the show.

Interested? Contact Carol ButlerĀ

Box Office

One person is needed on the box office to sell theatre tickets for the night and take reservation. This usually starts at 6.30 and is open until the end of the interval.

No theatre can work without an audience. We are constantly promoting our productions and trying to find new ways and places to get our messages across. We have a newsletter The Prompter, and a busy Facebook page amongst other channels. If you are interested in social media, writing, photography or design, then marketing is eager to here from you.

Interested? Contact Richard Leigh
