Lyric Theatre couldn't exist without the support of its loyal volunteers. We encourage everyone, regardless of age or experience, to join our family and help to create theatrical magic! All you need to do is have the desire to help; we'll teach you the rest and make use of the talents you bring to the group.
Some of the ways you can help include:
- Cast Is art calling to you? Can you see yourself behind the footlights, onstage in costume and make-up? Check out our audition notice and come and try out. We always need onstage talent of all skill levels, from leads, dancers, ensemble and supernumeraries. Don't be shy show us what you've got!
- Production and Artistic Staff Behind every great show are dedicated producers and directors supported by our volunteer crews. Prospective Music Directors and Stage Directors should contact us to see if there is a show that would fit your experience and interest.
- Stage Crew Do you like to dress in black and speak softly into headsets? Or how about designing or hanging lights? Applying make-up and wigs? Looking for and organizing props? Ever wonder how we move entire cities during 15-minute intermissions? If so, our run and stage crews are for you!
- Costumes Like to sew? You can help create our beautiful and authentic costumes in our costume shop.
- Orchestra Play an instrument? Lyric Theatre's own volunteer orchestra is the pride of our group! Tackling complex scores and making beautiful music is the hallmark of our 30+ piece opera orchestra.
- Pianists Play piano? We're always on the lookout for rehearsal pianists.
- Set Building Ever want to build a castle? Maybe drafting and carpentry are up your alley? Learn skills of building a set and handling power tools by helping in our scenery shop.
- Infrastructure Organized by nature? Outside of theatrical productions there is a myriad of infrastructure volunteer positions work including publicity, finance, and even envelope stuffing!
