and learn about the
Unity Theatre welcomes and encourages community involvement. Volunteers participate in almost all aspects of our operation, so there are many opportunities to learn about live theatre.
Some jobs require only an occasional hour or two, enabling volunteers to help as they can.
Most volunteer assistance is very flexible and scheduled at the volunteer’s convenience. Some jobs require a specific commitment, such as being the receptionist every Tuesday morning.
Our theatre staff provides a rewarding and educational experience for all volunteers. We offer positions that work side-by-side with professional artists, and we provide clear guidance.
Let us help you find the role that will best utilize your talents and make the greatest contribution. For more information, or to volunteer your services,
