GET INVOLVED WITH LUNG HA THEATRE COMPANY
Anybody over the age of 18 who has a learning disability or Aspergers syndrome is able to join the company and no previous acting experience is necessary - just a good attitude and a passion for theatre. Auditions for new company members are held annually, usually in the spring. If you would like to join the performing company please fill in the adjacent form stating that you would like to join the Company in the message box, and you will be added to the list. We will then contact you prior to the auditions with more information.
At the heart of our work is the fantastic Volunteer Support Team. Our volunteers support and encourage the company members to work to the best of their abilities, while participating fully in workshops and rehearsals (including warm up exercises, movement and improvisations). There are sometimes opportunities for volunteers to participate in performances and provide extra support backstage. Our volunteers don't provide personal care. Experience of working with people who have a learning disability would be an advantage, but is by no means essential. We welcome interest from potential new volunteers all year round, but normally recruit and induct new volunteers once or twice a year. The recruitment process involves an informal interview and taking part in a workshop or rehearsal. If you'd like to find out more about volunteering, please fill in the adjacent form stating that you would like to join the support team in the message box. All volunteers are required to have PVG membership for doing regulated work with protected adults. We support our volunteers to apply for membership if they don't already have it, or for a scheme record update if they do. This is completely free.

Richard Vallis, co-founder of Lung Ha Theatre Company, started his Three Charities Walk on Wednesday, 20 May. Inspired by Captain Tom Moore, Richard - who lost his leg to bone cancer 24 years ago - aims to walk 100 laps of his garden to raise £6,000 for three charities close to his heart: Friends of Chitambo, Lothian Disability Sport and Lung Ha Theatre Company
