This ongoing page include details of administration staff who have worked at the venue since 1955. It is drawn entirely from surviving programmes and material in archive and whilst comprehensive, it cannot be seen as definitive due the limitations of the Stephen Joseph Theatre Archive (please see Research Notes for further details).
If you notice an omission, please contact with details.
