Volunteer Opportunities

Work on a Show

Hanging Posters

This is an extremely important job in helping to bring awareness to upcoming shows. Our volunteers post over 700 posters in Lewiston/Auburn and the surrounding communities for each performance.

  • In return for this important service, poster volunteers receive complimentary tickets to each show they post!

We are currently seeking volunteers for the following Poster Routes:

  • Gray
  • New Gloucester / Dry Mills
  • Poland / Poland Spring
  • Portland

The number of tickets awarded depends on the specific route. Typically, a volunteer will receive 1 ticket ($20 value) per 15-20 posters, with each route having a minimum of one ticket. The tickets are only good for the show you are posting and cannot be saved or switched to another production.

If you are interested in one of these routes, please Call (207) 782-2211 now for more information or Email Us Today!

Ushering & Concessions

Ushering and concessions are performed by organized volunteer teams. As the face of the theatre, your goal is for each theatergoer to have an exceptional experience. You can join a regular team, or offer your assistance as a “fill in” team member.

  • Team participants get to see that show’s performance for free.

Backstage Crew

The run of a show is approximately a 2 week commitment. As part of this crew, you’ll work closely with theatre staff, directors and actors to assist in the production. You are required to be at all dress rehearsals and performances.

  • Backstage participants get to see the performances for that show for free.
