Get Involved

Jump into the world of Oxford theatre!

Oxford Theatre Guild is a thriving and busy theatre company – and we’re always keen to welcome new members! For more information about our opportunities both backstage and treading the boards, just look at the toggles to the right of this box.

Calling All Actors

We currently produce four shows a year, and all have completely open auditions. You don’t have to be a member to audition, and we never pre-cast roles: every role is available, whether you’re a long-standing or completely new member!

For more information on our next auditions, visit our Next Auditions page and sign up to our auditionees mailing list to be informed of future opportunities as they become available.

Directors Wanted!

We also hold completely open application processes for directors. Just like actors, you don’t have to be a current member to apply, and not all slots require previous experience. If you’re interested, keep an eye on the website for announcements of upcoming slots – or Contact Us, if you would like to know more about the process.

Techies Assemble!

Every show also needs a crew! From hunting down props to operating the lighting desk, from painting set to stitching costumes, there are loads of opportunities to get involved backstage at the OTG. Whether you’re looking for a large or small time-commitment, if you’re interested in being part of an OTG show, we’d love to hear from you!

If you’d like to get involved, or would like to know more about what backstage opportunities we currently have available, please do Contact Us.

Each show I do with the OTG gets better and better. Everyone's so welcoming, and to top it all I get to learn new skills! - OTG Member

Membership of Oxford Theatre Guild is open to all with an interest in theatre craft and an enjoyment of performance. There is no requirement to join the Guild before auditioning for a production, but if you’re cast or become part of the crew in one of our shows, we do require you to become a member of the OTG.

Membership lasts a year, and all the details can be found on this very page. You can also join at any time unconnected to getting involved in a show, if you wish!

Members receive Prompt, a regular email newsletter with details of auditions and directing opportunities, as well as news from around the Oxfordshire theatre community.

Visit our membership portal to join up.
