Join Us

HIADS are always pleased to welcome new members to the society.

Are you interested in acting? We are always looking for new thespians and HIADS directors are normally very keen to try out new talent.

Have you an artistic flair? HIADS may be the perfect outlet for your skills - scenery painting, props, sign painting, wardrobe, etc.

Are your manual skills going to waste? Scenery building and props of various sizes are often built from scratch by our members. Also the Theatre itself requires constant maintenance.

Would you enjoy learning more about the technical side of performances? Lighting and Sound are essential to every event in the Theatre, so set-up and operation of the equipment is a valuable skill.

Do you have the skills to welcome and take care of our audience members? Perhaps you would enjoy getting involved with our friendly Front of House team.

Would you like to join the friendly HIADS team and get involved in 6 HIADS performances a year and support various other music and acting events at the theatre?
