AUDIENCEThe people who attend our shows and/or have requested information about the theatre.

MEMBERSPeople who pay to be a member of the Stockport Garrick Theatre society.

This involvement may include (but is not limited to) scenery construction, costumes, properties, publicity, front-of-house arrangements, stage management, sound, lighting, direction, choreography, music and orchestra. Supporters also include lapsed members, as such members normally wish to remain in contact with the society and may wish to renew their membership at a future date.
