We pride ourselves on being approachable, so drop us an email and let’s start chatting.
We are interested in programming new and original work across the performing arts; however, if you’ve got an idea that doesn’t quite sit in that section, get in contact and sell it to us! Please note we do not programme amateur dramatics - it has an essential position in the ecology of performing arts, but unfortunately that position is not with us.
We are ultimately interested in creating relationships with artists and companies, to enable us to build a community and a network. Alphabetti can only offer artists a box office split but it is always weighted in the artist’s favour. Due to Alphabetti’s size, we are unable to offer guarantees.
If you want to be programmed, get in touch with our Artistic Director, Ali, and he’ll get back to you as soon as he can. If you still haven’t had a reply within a week or two, give him a cheeky nudge or better still come into the venue. Contact Ali at .
We are a small team of staff here at Alphabetti, but we have a large and lovely family of volunteers who generously give their time to support us. Most of our volunteers work on the theatre's box office, but we have also enlisted volunteers to help us in the office, in our workshop and prop store, and with building and painting. Many of our volunteers have gone on to work with us in one form or another, whether that be in writing or performing, working on the bar, even setting up the bookshop!
Becoming a volunteer for Alphabetti is a great way to get involved behind the scenes, meet people and make connections, see lots of great artistic work, and be part of a wonderful community in our city. We're firm believers in 'the more, the merrier', so we're always happy to welcome new members.
There are currently no vacancies at Alphabetti Theatre.
We sometimes offer artists and companies up to five day residencies in our venue. This is an unfunded stream of Alphabetti, so in return to cover the costs we ask the residency company to produce an event: this can be a showback of the developed work, a disco, a quiz, a scratch night…anything! As long as it gets punters through the door and drinking at our bar!
