As an all-volunteer theatre, MainStage offers everyone the opportunity to get involved in the creative process of "putting on a show."
All volunteers receive 2 complimentary tickets and a comp for the final dress rehearsal. Don’t worry if your technical skills are not carpenter-esque; they’ll teach you and there’s usually painting!
The volunteer positions are organized by level of expertise and commitment required. For more information on opportunities, please contact us at 972-594-6104 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
