What is Manna

Theatre Company?

 Manna Theatre Company is the musical theatre area of our ministry. We produce musicals to be performed in our community on professional theatre stages. Bringing the gospel to the marketplace. We are a collective family of believers passionate about sharing the Gospel from as young as 12 right through to adult. 


We believe that by being a part of the theatre company, you will gain skills in areas such as dance, drama and vocal. And gain confidence and ability to perform. 

Frequently asked questions

If you'd like to perform with us, joining the company is by audition only, to get an audition please email us at joinus@mannaministries.org.uk. Or for any other enquiries about Manna Ministries please email us at info@mannaministries.org.uk

All our team are fully DBS checked and go through a volunteer application process.

Where are the rehearsals?

Our rehearsals are held in the West Midlands & Surrey (currently, all our rehearsals are online).

What safeguards are in place for children and adults mixing?

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

Manna Ministries was founded by the Crick family, who are passionate about seeing musical theatre used to share the gospel. As a family they volunteer full time and upaid to support the mission of Manna. So, we would ask as a memeber of Manna Theatre Company to donate a monthly ammount of your choice, split two ways. Half to support the ministry overheads and half to support the Crick family who run it.



"When I first came to Manna, it ignited a little spark of love for musical theatre. Now, almost 6 years later, it has grown so much bigger. I love to play different characters in shows and learn new skills every week."
