So you've always
wanted to be in a play. Or maybe the idea never occurred to you before,
but then you saw a show and thought, "Hey, I could do that!"
Or maybe you're just looking for a new way to have fun and make some friends.
ACT is the place
Everything we do
- from acting and directing to building sets, selling tickets and decorating
our building - is done by volunteers ... about 300 of them each season.
And we're always looking for more.
Here are some ways
you can get involved
- Come read a play! Directors
often schedule informal readings of plays in advance of audition dates.
It's a great way to find out more about the play and available roles
and try out your interpretive skills in a casual, no-risk setting.
- Try out for a show. Check our season
schedule to see what's coming up, or follow the auditions link to
your left. We offer roles for actors of all backgrounds, from beginners
to the experienced. Even if you're not sure you want to try out, feel
free to stop by auditions and watch!
- If you want to work backstage, auditions are also a great place
to contact directors and let them know you're available. Otherwise,
contact our Volunteer Coordinator.
- Usher a show. If you're not sure where you'd fit in, but you'd
like to get to know us a little better, ushering is a great way to dip
your toe in the water without a major time commitment. Contact our Volunteer
Coordinator and let her know when you're available.
- Come down for a work party!
Ongoing remodeling and other projects often need volunteers!
- Teens: Check out YouThespians, our special
group for young people from 4th grade through high school, offering workshops in acting, design
and other aspects of theater, plus an opportunity to be involved in
a full-scale production.

If you're already part of ACT, but looking to get more involved, buy
a membership and talk to a board member
about joining our team of managers, volunteers who take responsibility
for everything from writing news releases to preparing lobby displays
to caring for our lights, costumes and props!
