Enjoy theatre (of course you do, that’s why you are reading this) and enjoy writing? Then you could be just who we’re looking for to join our team of volunteer reviewers. Better yet, you don’t need to just be in London to join, in fact if you live outside London we really do want to hear from you more.
Interested? Great, take a read about what we’re looking for and get in touch if you want to be part of our team.
What are the perks? Free tickets. Do you need to say more? All of our reviews are via invites, and they come with a free ticket. Quite often we’ll also be able to offer a plus one, so you can take a friend, or make it a very cheap date night! And if that wasn’t enough, many times we even get a free drink pre-show.
As well as that, it’s a great way to improve your writing and it certainly makes a great entry on your CV if you are job hunting. And admit it, who doesn’t want to see their writing published online and read by hundreds of people?
What if I know nothing about theatre? It doesn’t matter. Our core aim is to publish honest and unpretentious writing that everybody can understand. We’re not a site aimed only at the theatre-buffs, we’re a site for everybody, so knowing nothing about theatre is a strength rather than a weakness. We’ll help you along the way with advice on what makes a good review and what you should be looking for. You might start with limited knowledge but you’ll be amazed how much you pick up when you start to look out for it.
What if I have my own review blog? That doesn’t matter, we’re happy for you to post your reviews on your own blog as well as our site. We’ll even put a link to your blog on our site if you want. That way you get read by even more people and the chance to see even more shows. Plus, you get the assistance of our editors who could help improve your writing and give you some handy tips on making your writing even better.
You said you want to hear from people outside of London, that’s me and I would love to help out? We are actively trying to expand our reviewing team outside of London. As theatres around the country reopen and things slowly return to some normality, then what better time to sing the praises of theatres up and down the country. We get lots of invites from regional theatres so just tell us where you live and we’ll see if we can get you along to see some local offerings.
What about the time commitment? Everything Theatre is 100% volunteer, so we don’t expect you to write a few reviews a week. What we do ask is you commit to at least one review a month, but hopefully you can do much more, we always have more invites that we can cover so we can keep you in theatres every week if you like.
Interested or have questions we haven’t answered here? Then drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org, including a sample theatre review and we’ll get back to you from there. If you haven’t anything recent to send, why not write a review of something that is online right now, there are many free shows available still.
