Our People

The Gaiety Theatre is a social enterprise run entirely for the benefit of the local community, with an overall vision to grow the performing arts and culture in Ayr and South Ayrshire to benefit all residents.

We’re unlike most theatres in the UK as we’re largely run through voluntary effort supported by a small core staff team.
