South Devon Players Theatre & Film Company is seeking lovely volunteers who love theatre and supporting creative arts, to help an award-winning theatre company dedicated to creating opportunities for local people.

Time commitments are entirely around what you can do; any time you can give is hugely appreciated. The key qualities of the volunteers are: being friendly and reliable.

We are looking for people based in Brixham, to help with the following:

  • helping to video and record shows for online projects (all equipment supplied)
  • fundraising (helping with grant application forms, running fundraising stalls at fetes and markets, coming up with new ideas for fundraising)
  • publicity (costumed walkabouts, making press contacts, door to door leafletting, creating video trailers, coming up with other publicity ideas)
  • to help with props building for shows using supplied recycled materials.

The South Devon Players Theatre & Film Company is based in Brixham, and its core work involves performing around the South Devon area, specialising in full length theatre shows based on researched historical events and classical literature. It was founded during the winter of 2005/6 to create inclusive opportunities for people in the Torbay area (and some from the wider Devon area) to get involved in creating high-quality theatre and thereby develop / further professional skills, careers and portfolios towards working in the entertainment industry.

Everybody can join the company, from beginners to people who have been professional performers for decades. All work together in a friendly, supportive team, and are open to anyone aged 16 and over. People working with the company have gone on to work in large scale film & TV productions, to further training inclusive of RADA and Bristol Old Vic, and to obtain the credits needed for professional registration with the actors' Spotlight directory which in turns allows them to be able to apply to register with larger actors agencies. Over the past few years, the company won several awards including on a national and international scale: the All-England winner of the "Epic Award" 2017 (now rebranded as the Creative Lives Award) and the Theatre Partner Award in the Long Island Theatre Awards 2019 (New York).

If you're interested in helping with any of it, and to meet up in Brixham for an informal chat over coffee, please send an email to [email protected]. You can find more details about this opportunity at
