Backstage Theatre Jobs was founded in 2006 by Phillip Berryman and Sharon Calcutt Cheadle whilst touring together around the UK.
We were constantly getting phone calls from friends and colleagues looking for assistance on their shows. Whether it was for a technician, somewhere to source a prop or how to use a certain piece of equipment etc.
We decided there had to be a better way of linking people together and realised that forming a Facebook group for like- minded people was the way forward.
Backstage Theatre Jobs is free to join and members can post jobs and ask questions in a community environment.
Starting from an idea we had in a van 14 years ago, we now have over 16,000 members worldwide and recently had to take on extra admins to help with the amount of members joining us each day.
It just goes to show how important theatre is around the world and that we are all just one big family.
