This project relies on help from the alumni community. If you see a show missing information, a committee record a few names short or just have an interesting story to tell you can help out in a number of ways.
Report problems with individual pages – best for small additions
Click the Message the Editors button on the right when on the page you want to tell us about and fill in the form.
If you spot a misspelled name, a terrible typo or can help us fill in some blanks you can add to this by reporting problems with pages.
We use an issue tracker to maintain a list of jobs to do. Please keep in mind all reports are public. You can see all reports made using this tool here.
Contacting us – best for large contributions
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have something to contribute. In particular we are looking for: listings of season shows, casts and crew lists, photographs, programmes, flyers, reviews and anything else which could provide an insight into the history of the theatre.
Don’t worry if you aren’t quite ready to part with your cherished New Theatre relics just yet – Manuscripts and Special Collections have offered to photograph and document any items sent to them, and then return them safely to you for safe keeping!
Add yourself and other people
As well filling in the form for each page, we have a specific form to add and make changes to a person’s page. You can search through everyone we know of, and if you’re not there or have things to add (a headshot, bio, fun anecdote, or link to your professional website), you can fill in our person form.
Upload images – for photographs and other media
See the sending in images page.
Get involved – join the team of contributors
We have a strong team of contributors but would love you to help us out directly. The Improve This Page button appears on pages suitable for direct edits. By clicking on Propose Improvements, you will be taken through to our GitHub page to create a fork of the repository, make your changes to that page, and submit a pull request.
This process is a little bit more involved than the other two, see the Contributors’ Guide for more information, or to learn how to make larger changes, such as to multiple pages or templates.
