Q: Do I need any experience to volunteer?

A: No! While some background in theater is helpful, all we ask is that you bring your enthusiasm and a desire to pitch in.


Q: Do I need to perform on stage?

A: No. We have plenty of jobs for those who prefer to stay out of the limelight. Some members of our group have been with us for years and have yet to step on stage.


Q: What can I do?

A: We have a variety of opportunities that are available. Find one that fits your interests.


Q: Once I volunteer to do something, do I always have to do it?

A: No. Not everyone does the same thing for each show. In fact, you might be able to do a different job each time you volunteer.


Q: Do I get paid?

A: Sorry no. All our available positions are for volunteers. But there are some great benefits to volunteering, including: Attending cast parties, free viewing of the show, and the chance to work with an amazing group of people while promoting culture and the arts in Tioga County!


Q: If I volunteer during a production do I get to see it?

A: Yes, usually. If a show is sold out we will not have seating available for volunteers. In addition, volunteers are generally invited to watch the final dress rehearsals.
