Volunteering at TC

The success of every Theatre Charlotte production depends on the time and talents of people just like you. Our volunteers are performing onstage, working backstage, selling refreshments, and seeing you to your seat. There is something for every interest and no experience is necessary!

At Theatre Charlotte we are very proud of the talent we are able to put on stage. Our actors are all volunteers and devote up to six weeks of rehearsal time and three weeks of performances to give our audiences an outstanding theatre experience. To audition for one of our shows, please visit our audition page.

We take great pride in providing a high-quality theatre experience which not only includes the outstanding performers on stage, but the hardworking members of our production crew as well. This team of volunteers comes together to make each performance consistent and seamless. A typical production crew consists of a light board operator, a sound board operator, and stage hands who move scenery and set props. There are also volunteers who help build and paint the set during our volunteer work days.

We also need volunteers during performances to sell concessions, usher, and provide box office support. Scheduling of front-of-house volunteers is handled through a partnership with Hands On Charlotte. If you are interested, please go to handsoncharlotte.org, search for Theatre Charlotte on the Volunteer Opportunity calendar, and follow the directions to register and sign up.

Front-of-house volunteer opportunities (usher, concessions, will call, etc.) for all of our productions are posted through the HandsOn Charlotte website, a local charter of the HandsOn Network, which works to build community through service and civic engagement.
