Volunteer! We’d love to have you!
Thank you for your interest! Whether you sew, paint, craft, build or type,
we have a place for you! For more info, email us, or call 480.837.9661 x3.
If you have a unique talent or skill, please call and let us know about it! Here are but a few areas that we are always in need of volunteers:
Essential business component for the theater is communication for shows, auditions, announcements, events etc. Because of the size of the theater database communication is generally through bulk mailing. Bulk mail involves photocopying, assembling, placing labels and dropping off the mail at the Scottsdale bulk mail outlet.
This is a crucial group for a smooth running operation. It can also be fun as you get to know others who enjoy the theater. Calling can take place at the theater or at home or office. Generally, it is for reminders, volunteer needs for theater projects, follow up, or welcoming new patron or volunteers. We need about 6 people for this group and the time commitment will vary.
Simple…we need help in keeping it spiffy indoors and out! Sweeping, dusting, vacuuming, and general tidying-up.
If you have office skills or are very organized the theater could really use you in the office for filing, typing, data entry and other office work. We will train you with Theater procedures and call you periodically for help!
With building construction and on-going set construction and other carpentry, electrical, plumbing etc needs, we are looking for a large group of skilled, semi-skilled, unskilled people in all construction areas. This team may also handle maintenance and repair of the facility.
Not just for seamstresses! From overalls, to two-headed llamas…calling all who craft, hot-glue, sew and have a creative vision. Help with the design and actual construction and fitting of the costumes as well as people who simply can iron, glue, sew on buttons and run around searching for and picking up fabric, feathers, and knick-knacks that are needed for the grand costume illusion. This is very rewarding and just plain fun! If you are interested in being the costumer for one of our productions, please let us know—there is a small stipend for this opportunity, as well as a small budget for expenses.
During the holiday season and at special events such as Broadway in the Desert, Season Opening, Receptions, etc. we need a group that will help create, find, unpack, assemble, and repack our special event decorations.
If you enjoy creating and implementing fundraising projects big and small, this is for you. Some fundraising projects are already in place but others are only a thought. As the theater expands its reach and growth, this will be a very important group of dedicated individuals!
Hair and Makeup
A background in hair and makeup or a really serious interest in this area is a must. We need 1-2 people for each production. Working hair and makeup for a youth show offers a particularly rewarding and creative experience!
At the theater door, at events, or in the community we need people of goodwill who will welcome others to the theater as patrons or volunteers or potential donors. This group will be well educated in the history, current situation, accomplishments etc. For those in the group who are willing, they will lead “Behind the Curtain Tours,” attend receptions, and help facilitate silent auctions.
Painting the Set
Fun, interesting and rewarding. This will be a spontaneous group because sometimes painting is delayed due to scheduling, changes, and redesign. Experience in faux-painting techniques can be very helpful, but is not required!
Get into the heads of our directors and drag out what they see! From vintage magazine covers and train tickets, to fake food and objects of fantasy, you’ll source and create what’s needed to complete the scene! You’ll work with the show director and Pinterest will be your pal! We have a wonderful props storage facility where you’ll begin your sourcing. (there is a small budget for necessary expenses).
