Production Volunteers – It takes many hands to produce a musical. At SLOC everything you see on stage has been created by dedicated volunteers. If you would like to be involved in show production, there are many ways you can help, whether you are an experienced designer or have always wanted to learn more about backstage theater.
Creating a setting for the show – from elaborate castles to simpler interiors, every musical has a setting which starts with the vision of the director and set designer and takes many hands to bring it to life
Without lights, the setting, actors and audience would be left in the dark! The lighting designer works with he director to create the mood of each scene. During the run of the show, volunteers run the lighting board, spotlight and special effects.
The beautiful costumes you see on stage are the result of hours of work by the costume designer and their crew of dedicated volunteers.
Volunteers are also needed for sound design and execution, hair, makeup, stage management and backstage crew.
Ushers, House Managers and Box Office Staff – As an audience member, you know how important it is to be able to get information about the theater, buy your ticket and find your seat! Our audience services volunteers make this possible by answering your questions, processing your order and showing you to your seat. If you would like to participate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Facilities Volunteers – SLOC owns and operates the three buildings on the Performing Arts Center Campus. As you can imagine there is a great deal of maintenance involved with keeping up these properties. While some jobs need to be contracted out, routine maintenance, such as painting, cleaning and grounds maintenance can be done by volunteers. We often put out a call via email and social media for this type of help.
Throughout the season we like to recognize volunteers who have gone above and beyond the call of duty. These volunteers an be anyone from actors to set construction volunteers to ushers! We value every person that sets foots in the theater and offers their time and talent to making SLOC a great place to be. Click here to see our featured volunteers for the 2022-2023 season!
