Current Volunteer Positions

COSTUME SHOP The Costume crew works with the costume chair to organize and prepare costumes during the show. In shows with many costumes there is work to be done right away, such as measuring cast members to pair them with existing costumes, sewing new ones as needed and repairing or altering ones from storage. No previous backstage experience is necessary. Sewing skills are always needed and welcome, but not necessary.
SET CONSTRUCTION/ STAGE CREW Any number of volunteers are needed to help build sets under the direction of the technical director. Work nights are typically Tuesday and Thursday nights, 6 weeks prior to a show, and occasional weekends, but come when you can. No special skills are necessary. Painting or a special technique will be taught. Tools and equipment are provided. STAGE CREW– Moving set pieces or working the fly rail during shows (usually requires your presence at every show for the work assigned to you).
HOUSE MANAGER The house manager oversees the lobby and all patron areas during performances, and is available for audience emergencies. This position is responsible for explaining what is needed to new ushers, generally helping where needed in the lobby and overseeing sales at the concession stand. The house manager communicates with the stage manager about when to open lobby doors and dim lights after intermission. Usually assigned to one of the ushers signed up for each show by the usher coordinator.
USHERS A crew of 8 to 12 ushers is needed for each show. Ushers come to the theatre 45 minutes before curtain and show people to their seats. Ushers sell concessions before and after show and during intermissions. No previous experience is necessary. Ushers are able to see the show for no charge in any available seats left after patrons are seated. We ask that they wear a white top/shirt and black bottoms- no jeans or tennis shoes please.
BOX OFFICE VOLUNTEER Volunteers staff the box office for about 1 hour before each performance. They sell tickets, provide exchanges, hand out ‘will call’ tickets and in general, serve as customer service representatives.
PUBLICITY HELPER Help with putting up posters around town about a month before shows. Also, help post the shows under event calendars on various web sites.
