We are proud to offer a Volunteer Program for people from all walks of life that leads to personal and professional development through creative training and community service, and provides an opportunity to make a meaningful commitment to our shared community through award-winning programs of The Actors Theatre Workshop.
Volunteers provide support for ATW management, development, and production activities. The program begins with a one to two week training in theatre operations and enriched by reading essays written by ATW’s Artistic Director and Founder Thurman E. Scott, as well as viewing video tape documentaries of past programs and productions. The training period allows volunteers to learn about ATW’s core mission and creative philosophy while gaining hands-on knowledge of its operations.
Volunteers utilize their talents and expertise in a variety of areas to make a real contribution to our organization and the community. The volunteer program includes a regular weekly volunteer commitment that depends on the particular areas in which you volunteer. Different operating aspects of the theatre that volunteers may be involved with include: theatre administration, marketing & PR, fundraising, video production, facility maintenance & beautification, program/event/production support, graphic design, and grant writing.
