Volunteers

We delight in visits from a wide range of local people.  Please use the contact page or email us or telephone to let us know if you'd like to join us.

Many of our volunteers have come through our contacts with the huge number of friends of the company who have seen our work with children and young people and have continued to visit us on our travels. We have linked up with student groups from local colleges and universities, local arts workers, teachers, business and commercial contacts, and our great joy has been to work with volunteers from the over 55's group Heydays at the West Yorkshire Playhouse.
 
Wendy Fernyhough from Heydays writes:
 
"I've always been interested in drama and working with a theatre company is a treat.

It is fascinating to see how each performance evolves differently as the company accepts and incorporates into the action the ideas and suggestions put forward by the children.

It is often very moving to watch the children's reactions and how it stirs their  imagination, indignation and sense of justice."
 
Sophie Ketteringham, student from Roundhay School, writes:
 
"I found it interesting that this type of interactive theatre really pushed children's imaginations and brought out some different thought-provoking ideas. Working with Alive And Kicking has really made me think about the different routes you can take in the performing arts industry and I have got some great life and career advice out of this experience."
