What is expected of me?


We will ask you to purchase a uniform and attend all rehearsals whether online or in person (those with long travel distances can arrange a suitable arrangement for attendance via online means).

What safeguards are in place for children and adults mixing?


Anyone over the age of 18 will need to complete DBS form, as we are working as one collective theatre family, adults will have interaction with children. This is why this safeguard is in in place.




Where do you perform?


We perform in multiple areas, typically though we perform within a local range of our rehearsals. Although sometimes we get asked to perform further away, this would result in a tour. We typically perform within the Summer holidays and Christmas period.




What musicals do you perform?


We perform our own orignal musicals. We have had great success in this over the years with multiple sell out shows! Every musical contains a message of faith.




How are parts in a musical allocated?


We hold auditions for parts within the musical towards the begining of the rehearsal schedule.




Do I need experience in the performing arts to join the company?


No, but an audition is required and if passed you will be in!




How much does it cost?


Though there is no formal charge to be a part of the Theatre Compnay, we do believe in owning the vision. So we ask that if you believe in what we do and want to help us reach more people in our communities, that you prayerfully consider making a monthly contrubution to Manna Ministries. At the strat of auditions for casting in the musical we will aks for a contribution to the overall cost of your costumes.
