Volunteer with CTYP

We invite you to join the CTYP volunteer family

Volunteers are an integral part of Carousel Theatre for Young People. Each year, volunteers contribute over 1,500 hours to CTYP- and we are so grateful for their assistance.

We offer opportunities in all areas of our organization – from working in the office to assisting in production and , of course, welcoming patrons at our performances and special events. Being a volunteer is an excellent opportunity for high school students and young adults to gain working experience (letters of reference with total hours volunteered may be requested). Please note that volunteers must be 16 years or older.

Volunteer shifts are generally 3-4 hours in length, but may vary depending on the activity.

Volunteer Ushers are requested to sign up for a minimum of three usher shifts during the run of a performance. Usher shifts are approximately 3 hours.

Administrative Volunteers assist with general office duties including data entry, mailouts, answering general inquiries and light errands. Office volunteers are required to have basic computer skills and a solid command of the English language.

Production Volunteers vary depending on the unique needs of each play. For our mainstage productions volunteers assist with sewing duties in our Costume Shop, ‘Lightwalking’ during focusing and programming and painting sets. During our annual Teen Shakespeare Program, volunteers assist backstage and onsite with all aspects.
