Volunteer

There are so many ways to support us with your time! Join hundreds of local volunteers by creating a Shiftboard account.  Volunteers get to attend events and performances for free in exchange for their time.

We also attend the Theatre Bay Area Generals, which are typically held in January/February.

We always need fun and organized people to support us with the day-to-day tasks of our administrative offices, which include our Box Office, Development department, and Marketing department. Some of the tasks include helping with bulk mailings, making phone calls, data entry, and organizing our busy headquarters.

Help us bring the arts to young people across the region by helping with audience enrichment events, Student Discovery Matinees, and more.

As an usher, you may distribute programs, assist with the blanket bin, distribute assisted listening devices, and do a little general site upkeep after each performance. And you’ll see the performance for free!
