Seeking: Stage crew for Oliver!

We need your help!

Are you available to help out backstage or front of house during any of the performances of Oliver! (week ending 31st May 2015), as either:
– stage hand (shifting scenery around)
– stage manager (our stage is fairly small, there’s not that much to manage)
– prop wrangler (make sure the right person gets the right prop at the right time!)
– chaperone (child-herding)
– Ushers
– Tea maker extraordinary

If you can help out, the more shows you can help with the better, but if you can only do 1 or 2, that’s awesome too!

If you can help, please comment here, email, or talk to Sam Forster at any rehearsal (normally Mondays and Thursdays at the Marches School)!
