Ray of Light Theatre is a non-profit company that relies heavily on community support. We have opportunities for volunteers in all of our productions and in return for your help, we are pleased to offer you an opportunity to enjoy our shows FREE of charge.
For available opportunities, please read the descriptions below and if you’re interested in helping in one of the listed areas, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Lee Haskin, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Assistant Stage Manager: The ASM assists the stage manager in running the show–either from the booth or backstage–as well as preparing the stage, props and actors for each show. ASMs join the process during tech week and work every performance unless previously arranged.
Ushers: Ushers are the face of the company to our patrons. We’re always seeking friendly and helpful people to greet patrons, collect tickets, pass out programs and assist patrons to their seats. You may be asked to assist with concessions during intermission.
Box Office Assistants: Our box office is “mission control” prior to the start of each performance. We are looking for customer service-oriented and organized people to assist in greeting patrons, selling tickets and passing out Will Call tickets.
Costume Assistants: Costume assistants work with the Costume Designer building new and altering existing costumes. You do not need to know how to sew! Help may be needed in the form of distressing or dyeing fabric, fitting or finishing, or decorating hats and shoes.
Hair, Make-up and Wardrobe Crew: These vital team members assist actors with make-up application, hair/wig styling and wardrobe. Duties include helping actors with costume quick-changes, on-the-spot repairs and laundry prep.
Props Assistants: No prop is too big or small for our Prop Designer, who needs creative and resourceful people to help gather and build props. In the past, props have included everything from a pinball machine, Kentucky Fried Chicken and four different types of blood (used in a single show).
Set Crew: Duties include setting and striking props and scenery during a show and assisting actors with offstage procurement and use of props.
