Volunteers play a vital role and make a differance.

On behalf of all of us at Stages Theatre Company, thank you for considering us. We seek volunteers to usher at performances, serve as Board and Committee members, to work on special projects including office. See below for current needs.

Your generous time will contribute to our serving an annual average of 130,000 children and families.


Please complete our VOLUNTEER APPLICATION, found below.



Ushering (ages 12+)


Usher Responsibilities Include:

1. Tearing tickets
2. Distributing show programs
3. Assisting audience members to their seats
4. Quickly walking through the theater after performances to pick up 

As a thank you, we provide ushers with ticket vouchers to see future Stages Theatre Company productions, an invite to the annual Volunteer 
Appreciation Banquet, along with other perks and benefits.

Please note: Volunteer ushering requires you to be on your feet and able to move up and down stairs. Some light lifting may be required.

Volunteer Usher hours vary. Time commitment is usually 2 hrs per shift.

Most of our volunteers get involved by ushering for performances. We have nearly 300 performances and about 95,000 audience members every year, each of whom needs to get from the parking lot to their seat. We rely almost exclusively on volunteers to make this possible. Download the brochure now.

Scheduling is a first come, first served basis.

Office Work (ages 16+)

On an as-needed-basis: Office duties typically require working with files, organizing data, scanning photos & documents, making copies and computer data entry when applicable.   Office work hours are weekdays between 9:00am and 3:00pm, when needed.

Miscellaneous Projects (ages 16+)

1. Events require very hands on volunteers. Responsibilities can include (but are not limited to) setting up and breaking down displays, working at information and will-call tables, handing out resources, etc. Each event has unique elements and responsibilities vary accordingly. When you volunteer for particular events, STC will always welcome you to stay and enjoy that event.
2. We always have projects that require special expertise, particularly in the areas of volunteer management, set building, costume shop ambassadors, etc. If you have special talents and interests in these areas, we'd like to talk with you. Miscellaneous project hours vary according to the project.


We’d like to give a special shout out to our volunteer of the year family: The Paulsen’s. Parents Laurie & Jerry are staples of our ushering program as is daughter Hannah, when she isn’t on-stage or in the booth running sound or lights for the show.


Stages Theatre Company wishes to thank the Paulsen family and all of our volunteers for their time and effort.

Beginning with The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, we'll be featuring one outstanding volunteer each month! 

 For the safety of the children and families we serve, please note that all volunteers must agree to a Child Protection Background Check. Cost for this is covered by Stages Theatre Company.

We conservatively estimate that approximately 300 volunteers donate about 5,000 hours worth of service each year to Stages Theatre Company. As we have grown, maintaining and developing a strong base of well-trained, committed volunteers has become increasingly important to us. If you would like information about volunteering at Stages Theatre Company, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Brent Teclaw at (952) 979-1126 or via email.
