Go Behind the Scenes at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre and Join the Cast of Volunteers!
Great theater begins with you! That's right; the Maltz Jupiter Theatre is now casting for various roles to help the Theatre shine!
There is magic happening all around the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, and its staff needs your skills and enthusiasm. This season, join the Theatre's cast of more than 400 volunteers and become a part of the fabric of the award-winning professional theatre. Volunteers help in every department in the Theatre, with jobs based on talents, skills and interests.
The Theatre will host a free open house for prospective volunteers on Saturday, August 19, from noon to 3 p.m. Taking place at the Theatre, all department areas will be represented to discuss specific volunteer jobs. Residents are asked to allow one hour to visit all department stations; volunteers who visit each area will be entered to win a special prize. Light snacks and beverages will be provided.
"There's a role for everyone at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, and we'd like to invite local residents to join us," said Barbara Rafkin, the Theatre's volunteer coordinator. "With the 2017/18 season starting soon, we've created a number of fun ways to get involved at the Theatre. Tell your friends that we need them, too!"
Volunteers currently serve as bartenders, ushers, wardrobe specialists, box office assistants, production runners and more, with positions available daytime, evenings and/or weekends. Volunteers are recognized for their service through several appreciation events during the season.
Here's a sneak peek at a few of the exciting departments up for volunteer consideration:
· Ushering and Bartending
· Shuttle Drivers
· Production (assist the backstage crew or the costume shop)
· Marketing (special events and festivals, subscription campaign and more!)
· Box office (customer service)
· Development (fundraising events)
"Our not-for-profit theatre is the place to meet new people, experience wonderful entertainment and learn about the art of theatre," said Andrew Kato, the Theatre's producing artistic director and chief executive. "We are made up of staff, a board of directors, visiting artists, Conservatory students and volunteers. Together, we are 'family.'"
