OVO has no permanent acting company or creative team. Instead we maintain a network of around 100 associates who are involved in our work on a production by production basis.
Anyone can become an associate, but the selection process is rigorous, and the standard is high. We have a number of associates who have been involved in our work for many years; however, we are keen to attract new blood, and at least a quarter of the company for each OVO production to date has comprised OVO first timers.
Acting for OVO
Our approach is simple – we look for people who share our values and cast the best person for the part. Prospective acting associates will be asked to audition. Auditions are held regularly throughout the year.

OVO Creative Team
We have a wide range of opportunities in creative and production roles. These include production management, stage management, lighting, sound, film, music, set, costume and properties. All prospective members of the creative team will be asked to participate in an interview with the production’s Director and Production Manager.

Our home at the Maltings Arts Theatre in St Albans is largely staffed by volunteers who manage the bar and front of house during performances, and help to create a warm welcome for our audiences.
