Volunteering can be an exciting, growing, enjoyable experience. It is truly gratifying to serve a cause, practice one’s ideals, work with people, solve problems, see benefits, and know one had a hand in them. – Harriet Naylor
We need volunteers in a variety of areas. All positions are performed the day of the show and some are completed before the evening’s performances. We can use assistance with:
- day of show set-up

- fan parking attendants
- hand out programs
