Volunteer

As an all-volunteer theatre, MILC 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.
