Volunteers: Current Needs
Current Needs

We can always use an extra set of hands to run concessions, usher, or help on productions. Right now, though, we also need a few people who are willing to oversee specific areas of the theater. Please read the job descriptions below and see if you are the right person for any of these jobs.

Community Ticket Share Program Manager

There are people in our community who might love a night at the theater, but can't always afford it. Our Ticket Share program will offer a limited number of free opening weekend tickets to public servants, first-responders, and other targeted groups. Job responsibilities will include setting up codes in our database and contacting members of the community. A good manager should have good communication skills as well as current experience using computers and the Internet. Time commitment: approximately 5 hours for each production.
