The Epsom Playhouse, situated in Epsom town centre, comprises a 450 seat main auditorium and the 80 seat Myers Studio Theatre.
We are seeking a skilled and experienced individual to provide complex technical services to ensure professional presentation of performances and events for a rapidly growing programme of professional and community performances for its developing audience.
