Louth Playgoers’ Riverhead Theatre is a local community owned venue. It is maintained and run by a dedicated team made up almost entirely of volunteers.
The Society is led by a Board of Directors who bring many attributes to the Society some having experience of running businesses, working in the arts, working with people etc., but each and every one also giving of their time as a volunteer working in the day to day operations of the theatre.
Every person gives freely of his/her time to one aspect or another of the everyday life of the Riverhead. Even four paid (part time) staff also volunteer their free time. Our volunteers number well over 100 from all walks of life and all abilities each bringing dedication and enthusiasm seldom found in professional theatres. All that makes Louth Playgoers Riverhead Theatre one of the friendliest venues that you will experience and well respected nationally in many theatre circles for all it has achieved and its continued success.
We will try and offer all who wish to give of their time the opportunity to join the team. We exclude no-one and will find somewhere within the theatre for them to use their talents and work alongside others to their best advantage. We are mindful of all health and safety concerns and some activities associated with theatre life may not suit certain disabilities we will, however, try to offer an alternative area to work should any disability restrict a person from volunteering his/her services in any area.
If you have a little time to spare and would like to offer your services, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
