Behind the Scenes
If you have construction knowledge we need you! We also need people to help paint the set once it's built. Set building and painting are under the direction of the set designer so there's someone here to guide you. We also need people to work with props, costumes, be a crew member for a show, or learn how to run the lights and sound. Our volunteers make each production a success!

If you want to help out (and see the show!) but don’t think you’ll have time to work the run of a show, ushering is a great way to volunteer. The commitment is light, but the help is appreciated! We need ushers for every performance.

Cleaning, Organizing, and Historical Services

​Our beautiful building can always use extra hands to keep it clean and organized. We need help keeping our costumes and props organized and managing our scrapbook of past productions.

If you are interested in helping us in any way contact us at: We'd love to hear from you.

You can also join our private volunteers group on facebook for additional volunteer opportunities!


Did you know: We have over 50 volunteers per production! It's a great way to make friends!

How To Audition

We do cold reads for auditioning, which means no memorizing monologues, also it allows you to audition last minute if you decide on the spot that you would like to try out for a show. When someone auditions all they have to do is show up, fill out an audition form (you do not need any experience to audition) and read with another person on stage. We typically hold two audition nights so if you want to go to one, or both you can based on your schedule. We try and make the audition processes as accessible for people who want to give acting a try. Typically throughout our season have 2-6+ new actors who have never been on our stage before! 

We also provide a few things to help actors know when auditions are coming up and when scripts are available to check out.

There are three ways to know when auditions are coming up:

  • On our get involved page at

  • On our Facebook page under events.

  • By getting on our Actors List. Email: 

If you cannot make it to auditions you can contact us via email, phone, or in person. We can then sometime schedule an unusual audition chosen by the director of the show. (This however is not always possible)
