Become a Volunteer
Volunteers are an integral part of our organization and play a vital role in helping us to meet our mandate of affordability and accessibility. We offer opportunities in all areas of our organization – from working in the office to serving on our Board of Directors, to assisting in production and , of course, welcoming patrons during the season. Being a volunteer is great for all ages 15+, and an excellent opportunity for high school students and young adults to gain working experience (letters of reference with total hours volunteered may be requested).
