Want to help a local charity, would like to gain experience and make new friends? Or maybe you have some free time and would like to share your own knowledge.

The Maddermarket Theatre relies on it's band of volunteers, from acting to stage crew, box office to marketing and all areas of front of house. 

If you have the time and can offer your skills we'd love to hear from you please email our General Manager Rebecca Wass, rebecca.wass@maddermarket.org

 There are a number of ways in which you can get involved at the Theatre, and it is a great way to meet new people, add to your CV and gain work experience.  Many people join us when they retire as a way to bridge the gap between work and retirement.

There are a whole range of jobs from:

  • Box Office
  • Administration
  • Distributing flyers and posters
  • Painting
  • Set building
  • Stewarding or Front of house
  • Wardrobe
  • Bar work

Norwich Players Structure

Nugent Monck, founder of the Norwich Players and Artistic Director of the Maddermarket Theatre from 1921 until 1952, handed the Theatre over to the Norwich Players on his retirement.  The Maddermarket Theatre Trust was established and is still in existence today.  

Members of the Trust (the Norwich Players themselves), agree to pay a nominal sum should the Theatre ever close down and elect a number of people to be on the Board of Trustees. These Trustees are ultimately responsible and accountable for the affairs of the Theatre.  Being a Trustee is a voluntary role and Trustees may, from time to time, co-opt additional people onto the Board who have expertise in an area which needs particular attention (i.e. Law or Finance).
