We’re recruiting volunteers now - get in touch now to be part of this exciting event.

Be an angel - help make Inherited Cities a success!

We have lots of volunteers on our rota now, but there might still be last minute opportunities, so do get in touch if you’ve only just found this page!

Inherited Cities is a professional theatre piece with a cast of 13-19 year olds, drawn from five partner schools and colleges across Sheffield. It’s a co-production between Third Angel and Sheffield Theatres and will be performed in and around the Crucible Studio at the end of July. 

There are two ways to get involved, and both provide the opportunity to see how a show is realised, get to know members of the company, and help the young cast make the most of their experience. 

Why volunteer?

You would:
- be part of this exciting project that gives young people a chance to have their voice heard
- meet other volunteers interested in the arts 
- get an insight into how a large scale performance such as Inherited Cities is run 
- see Inherited Cities for free!


We are looking for people who can:
- be a point of contact and representative of Third Angel to the public – you will be part of the Front of House team

- assist with the smooth running of the performances
- ensure the safety of the audience, e.g. in the event of an emergency 
(training will be given)
- wear an Inherited Cities t-shirt to identify them to members of the public
- work with a positive and enthusiastic attitude 

- work well in a team 
- commit to shifts 

and be responsible, reliable and punctual 


We are particularly keen to hear from those who already hold a chaperoning licence. If you have not previously chaperoned we will guide you through the process of becoming a licensed chaperone. Once this process is completed you will be a licensed chaperone for 3 years. 

If you are new to chaperoning, they are the adults who will be in loco parentis, responsible for the physical and emotional well-being of up to 8 children whilst they are rehearsing for and performing in Inherited Cities, and be the key person to whom the children look to for guidance, protection, clarification and support.


We ask that all volunteers be available for a minimum of 2 dates. Priority will be given to applicants who are available to attend the most performances.
