Post-war Brighton, like the rest of the country, was undergoing massive change, and they want to know how this affected the Theatre, its staff and audiences.
Gathering people's stories and memories of Theatre Royal Brighton at that time and using these along with existing research and information to create displays, workshops, Open Days and an exhibition.
They are looking for more people to interview so that they can add to their collection of stories about the people who made Theatre Royal what it is now and was then.
Did you or your family or friends work at the Theatre? Did you visit regularly?
Have you got memories of being in the audience, selling tickets, serving drinks or operating the lights?
Have you got stories that have been handed down to you? Do you know people we should talk to?
Creative Learning Manager Jackie Alexander said:
"Theatre Royal Brighton is 214 years old and one of the oldest working theatres in the country.
"We know a lot about its early history and now we want to bring its more recent past to life!
"We want to know who the audiences were, where did they come from, what did they like to see, what did they think of their local theatre? And who worked here, what was it like, how different was it then?
"We want staff and audience members to share the limelight and tell their stories – stories from and about the people who worked here and the people who came to see the shows."
