THE Shoebox Theatre is moving home today and its staff are looking for volunteers to help them out.

Everything from its old Theatre Square abode will be packed up into boxes and loaded onto a van before being transported to its new home at the historic Milton Road Health Hydro.

After the van is unloaded, it'll go back to the old site to collect another batch of boxes. This won't be an easy or quick task so the team are asking for people to generously give up some of their time to support them and make the moving process run smoothly.

Email or meet at the old Shoebox Theatre site at 10.30am to get involved.

The new site will house an office, dressing rooms, a studio theatre and a box office in the space which originally housed a Victorian laundry. There'll be extra space for hosting extra classes, including drama classes for youngsters aged four and up, plus a new theatre company for young people.
