Salary / Fee:

Closing Date: 
Monday, 4 October, 2021

We are recruiting chaperones to join the team for our production of Rapunzel at Chipping Norton Theatre. Our ‘traditional-with-a-twist’ pantomime is nationally regarded as one of the best family shows. Each year we work with three teams of four children (aged 9-14), who play an integral role as performers in the show, alongside the professional adult cast.

As a Chaperone you will ensure the safety and wellbeing of the child actors in your care and report directly to the Lead Chaperone.

Your main duties will include:

Being responsible for escorting and supervising the children
Ensuring daily records are completed
Ensuring that the children are behaving in a quiet and safe manner at all times whilst they are on the premises.
Assisting with costume changes where required.
Passing on any safeguarding concerns to relevant staff at The Theatre.
We are looking for chaperones to support with both occasional and regular shifts during the rehearsals (25th Oct – 16th Nov) and performances (17th Nov – 16th Jan 2022). In particular (but not exclusively) we would welcome those with daytime term-time availability. Pay rate is £10.75 p/h. Previous experience of chaperoning welcome but not essential, but all candidates will need a recent DBS records check and a chaperone license (which, in both cases, we can help to obtain).
