You do not have to be an actor, musician, director, musical director or choreographer to share your time, talent and energy with Placer Community Theater. There are many other volunteer opportunities where you can apply your skills or learn a new one. (Yes, we will train you!) Placer Community Theater is 100% volunteer-run so we need people like you who are willing to come together to help make the magic you see on stage. It’s also a lot of fun and a great way to make new friends!
Below are some of the tasks that need to happen with almost every show. The volunteer job listing shows how these tasks fit into specific roles. Many of these jobs can be filled by a team of people who divide the work. If you are interested in any of these volunteer opportunities or would like more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
