The preview night is an ideal opportunity to hear about the next season of plays and meet the team. The Garrick currently put on five plays a season.

It takes a large team of people to put on a production, from actors, directors, to set builders, painters, technicians, wardrobe and props, front of house and others as well as the actors and the committee. Everyone who is involved in a show is a volunteer and they cannot have too many of them. Martin added: “Whether you love the theatre or just want a hobby we would love to hear from you.”

The Garrick’s preview night will be held on Friday, March 25th at St Stephen’s Church, Burnley, Lancashire at 7.30pm. There is no need to book – just turn up. If you do require more information, please feel email The Garrick Theatre Group on [email protected]
