Piers Ross, All Scene All Props
On every occasion we use Pirate crew they exceed our expectations…………the guys are always very helpful and more importantly skilled, this means we can relax about the loading process and not have to worry about potential damage to the scenery. As far as crewing companies go we would only use Pirate.
Phil McCandlish, Open Other End Ltd
Pirate Crew are the safety net you need, they will not let you down and always deliver.
Martin Jady, Production Manager
The Pirates are all hard working and diligent at work, and nice to hang out with after work.
Digby Robinson, Production Manager
Pirate Crew are the only theatre focused crew that I know, they have consistently supplied crew who know how to work in a theatre which is a very welcome innovation.
Lee Batty, Production Manager
Pirate Crew seem to have reinvented crewing, I can now expect properly trained, keen theatre professionals whenever I book a crew.
David Evans, Production Manager
I have booked Pirate Crew for the International tour of Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake, the UK tour of An Inspector Calls, Sadler’s Wells’ Shoes and for the National Theatre Wales, I keep booking them because they are so bloody good.
Jenny Green, Great Leap Forward
We have used the Pirates many times on our touring productions: from quick one-off gigs where we need some reliable crew for a day at a time; to big touring shows where the Pirates supplement our touring crew and venue staff.
Brod Mason, Steeldeck Project Manager
Once again, many thanks for providing me with crew who got stuck-in, showed initiative, worked hard, and got the job done on time.
Peter Bailey, RSC
Pirate Crew were integrally involved with the marathon pre build, loading and assembly of our New York auditorium and have recently been associated with our fit up of ‘Matilda, A Musical’ in London. On both projects the guys have brought first-rate skills and they themselves, always helpful and cheerful, have been a worthy addition to us, being excellent proponents of their company. We have been delighted to have them on board.
Kate West, Production Manager
Pirate Crew are always on time to a job, and ready to start working as soon as they are on site. They have always arrived with the appropriate tools and skills for the job that they have been booked for. They will attempt anything you ask from them, without complaint, even if the job is a little unusual, they are always enthusiastic about what they are doing. Although Pirate crew are happy to just lift things and follow instructions, they can also come up with ideas and solutions to a problem.
Andrew Quick, Production Manager, Garsington Opera
Gavin and Rob always respond quickly with a great attitude, are able to provide experienced crew at short notice and work with us to ensure that we can serve the show in the best way possible. We really enjoy working with them and have always been pleased with the results.
Pat Molony, Production Manager
Pirate Crew will supply crew bosses who take responsibility for a show, and don’t just leave when it gets to the end of their shift. Pirate crew are easy to work with, because they care about the projects they are working on. I would highly recommend Pirate Crew for both large and small jobs, both for theatre work and outdoor events.
Heather Deacon, Jamie Wilson Productions Ltd
Just want to pass along my appreciation for the work Matt and Liam did yesterday at our store. They got a challenging job (that seemed near impossible in my eyes) done efficiently and professionally.
Big thank you to them. We will certainly be using your services in the future.
I have worked with an Pirate crew on many occasions. They always go the extra mile to get the show on.
Phil Large, Master Carpenter
Having worked with the Pirate boys on a wide variety of jobs in all different venues, I’ve enjoyed their positive attitude to whatever is asked of them. They turn up with tools and theatre experience; expect to work hard and show respect for the venue’s staff and work practices. They are a practical and efficient staffing option for Production and Technical Managers to consider to work alongside house and production staff.
Stella Littlechild, Associate General Manager, Julian Stoneman Associates
The would like to take this opportunity to thank your team at Pirate Crew for the amazing job you did at the Gala Night event for Rock of Ages on Wednesday 28th September.
The evening was a huge success and what you did in such a short amount of time was incredible. The venue looked stunning and we had a fantastic response from our guests.
