Behind the scenes

The Sainsbury Singers backstage teamActing, singing and dancing is only half of the story. The Sainsbury Singers also relies heavily on a keen team of people working behind the scenes and front of house to stage musical theatre.

Backstage we are responsible for many of the technical requirements including stage, scenery, props lighting and sound. For our Hexagon shows we also work closely with the professional staff there. When you see the costumes, wigs and make-up in one of our shows you’ll know we did that too.

Front of house you’ll see our willing team of volunteers ensuring the audience is looked after – and at Leighton Park we even run our own bar and look after the car parking. 

We also have very busy social, fund-raising and publicity teams ensuring that we run a busy and financially secure programme.

Experience is not necessary for many of our backstage and front of house roles – we’ll teach you the skills required. If you are interested please complete the form on our membership page.
