The Barn Theatre, Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire


Thank you for taking an interest in becoming a member.

Nigel Rive Membership Director

Membership is open to EVERYONE.

Acting is not the only thing available to members at the Barn?

The success of our productions is largely due to the enormous amount of work that goes on by the creative teams backstage and our wonderful front of house volunteers. Every show, of course, needs a wealth of talented performers brave enough to play to around 1,000 people over the run of a show. We are of course delighted if you want to act, but if, following an audition, you are not chosen for a part, please remember we also need a large, dedicated team of people involved with all manner of other disciplines behind the scenes – backstage and front of house.


These range from stage management to set building, costumes and props to sound and lighting – sometimes even special effects.

Front of House

There are also the vitally important people involved front of house, selling tickets, serving coffee, stewarding, house managing, working behind the bar, overall club administration – the list really does go on and on… and on!

The wonderful thing about these ‘off-stage’ activities is you learn to understand the way that side of the Club operates: the fascinating process a production team goes through to stage a show. It also gives you a head-start should you choose to get involved on stage.

How to get involved?

You don’t have to be a member to audition for our productions, however, should your audition be successful, we do ask you to join the Club in order to participate.

Another great thing about becoming a member is you pay less for first-night tickets and you receive our monthly newsletter, Barn News, which details the forthcoming auditions and Club Nights open to members, as well as the other help needed in all areas of our thriving Club – we’d really love you to get involved.

If you choose to dive into a production, rehearsal schedules are planned to try and work around the creative team’s and cast’s availability. Production teams strive to be as accommodating as possible to help everyone who wants to take part.

We hope you are now clearer about how you can get involved at the Barn. You’re guaranteed to have a great time and you’ll meet loads of new people and avoid the difficulties that can arise when going to an unknown place and meeting new friends. Rest assured, you’ll also have bags of fun doing so!

When there is no show running in the theatre, the bar is still open Friday from 9pm — 11pm and Sunday 1pm — 3pm.
