Join in on the FUN… Become a Main Street Youth Theatre Volunteer

Volunteers are critical to the success of the Main Street Youth Theatre.  In fact, without volunteers and sponsors, we wouldn’t exist.  Most jobs are simple and require minimal time commitments, however with an army of volunteers, we can do amazing things. Listed below are some of our ongoing needs:

USHER (must be 16 yrs of age):  Ushers arrive at the theatre one hour prior to show time.  One usher is staffed at each door for every performance.  Ushers welcome guests, hand out programs, close and open doors at intermission and pick up stray programs in the house following the performance.

CONCESSIONS:  Concessions staff arrives an hour and a half before show time.  Typically two volunteers are sufficient.  Workers put out snacks and drinks, sell concessions before the show and at intermission.

BOX OFFICE: Box office attendants arrive two hours prior to the show to begin selling tickets.  Volunteers must be good with money and comfortable working with credit cards.

OFFICE ASSISTANT:  Answer the phone and very light office tasks.  You choose your own hours!

PRODUCTION ASSISTANT:  We are always on the lookout for production help – whether it is swinging a hammer, painting a set, focusing a light or helping backstage during a show.

GREEN ROOM ASSISTANT:  Volunteers must arrive 1 hour prior to show time.  They are responsible for bringing a  large bag of ice.  Primary job is to assist show members and keep the room as quiet as possible.

COSTUMES:  Can you sew?  Are you creative?   Do you enjoy transforming things into something different and new?  We can use your skills!

CARPENTERS: We always need people to help construct sets.  Any basic carpentry skills will do.

SET PAINTERS: With every new show, comes a new set to be painted.  You don’t have to be Picasso, you just need to be willing to wield a brush.  The painting is usually fairly simple & we’ll show you what needs to be done.

LIGHTS AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT:  If you are willing, we will train you.  We need people to run lights (spots) for shows as well as work the sound board.

FUNDRAISERS:  Anyone willing to help contact businesses/individuals as well as identify unique ways to raise funds are always welcome on our team.

OTHER:  We are always in need of extra sets of hands to do everything from organizing the costume room, hanging production posters around HH, painting, electricians, plumbers, HVAC, sewing and more.  We need you….just ask!
