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
  • ticket sales
  • fan parking attendants
  • hand out programs
  • ushers
  • judge tape runners – press box to field
  • concession sales

If you would like to volunteer contact John Baumgartner at our office 815-261-1956 or
