Front Of House Volunteering


A big way of helping the company

We always need lots of people to help at our performances to look after ‘front of house’, that’s running things ‘audience side’. If you have been before to our shows you will have seen volunteers in our beautiful front of house tent. In fact you may well have been one of them! We rely on them so much & quite honestly couldn’t tour without them.

Because we have over fifty venues right across the South of England we can’t possibly take a team with us, so rely mainly on local volunteers and they do have a lot of fun doing it – and they get to see the show for free!

So if you are confident, calm, polite and like organising people this will be for you.

How can I get involved?

Here are you options:

​1 - If you know who is organising the performance in a particular village or town then talk directly to them and express your interest.

2 - Contact our front of house manager, Anita Scallan, directly by email and discuss it with her. She will talk you through it and you can decide between you which is the best venue for you. She can be reached here

3 - Drop us an email at

The roles 

House Manager – Every venue needs someone to be in charge ‘audience side’. It’s not necessarily a big job; you just need to know what’s going on.

Ticket steward – In some respects this is the hardest job because of the paperwork but if you are confident then give it a go. There’s plenty of guidance both here and on the night from the Tour Manger & from the House Manager.

Site stewards – We need two or three site stewards helping seat the audience and selling programmes.

And that’s it!

Get involved, support the Rudes,

see the show for free & have some fun!
