Design call out for Victoria Wood's talent (Wednesday, June 30 – Saturday, July 24, 2021)

If you have saved any posters from your first gig, old flyers from your comedy days, a postcard of your favourite singer from the local club, then Sheffield Theatres are looking to use them on the set of their new show. They are in search of posters, flyers, postcards, headshots or any similar form of printed material from acts who performed in local Sheffield venues back in late 1970s. These may be comedians, musicians, singers, magicians - all are very welcome! Most importantly, they do not need to have been famous acts.

Great care will be taken to scan original printed material, before featuring scanned copies of posters/artwork on the Crucible stage as part of the Talent set. Anyone who provides material will also be thanked for their contribution in the programme.

If you have any material that might be used, please email [email protected] or get in touch via Sheffield Theatres’ social media: @crucibletheatre on Twitter, @SheffTheatres on Facebook, @sheffieldtheatres on Instagram. They would love to hear the story behind each print and where it came from. The deadline to submit material for this project is Wednesday, June 2, 2021.
