At NWT, we offer over 300 opportunities each year to volunteer in various capacities. Joining crew, volunteering at a show, or baking for our concessions are just a few ways to get the party started!
As a grassroots community organization, Near West Theatre relies heavily on help from the community to make sure a show can go on! For over 40 years, our volunteers have been the lifeblood of Near West Theatre.
Did you know that we have over 300 opportunities to get involved offstage every year? Each of these opportunities is critical to the smooth sailing of every single show and event. We simply could not do what we do without the loving help of our community.
Of course, volunteering at a show is not without its benefits. The perks: see the show for free and get one free concession item to enjoy!
We request that all volunteers arrive 1.5 hours before the start of a show (7:30pm show=6:00pm arrival; 3pm show=1:30pm arrival) and stay through intermission (usually about 3/3.5 hours).
Donations of all sizes create artistic opportunities for hundreds of youth and adults each year.
