VOLUNTEER AT PBTS
Volunteers are the heart of Players by the Sea. They supplement its work force and bring creative energy to the theatre. For more than 53 years, they have sewn costumes and sold memberships, run lights and read lines. They have auditioned, performed, cleaned up and carried on.
Box office workers, hosts, ushers, technicians, performers, costumers, carpenters, painters and stage crews all play critical roles in raising the curtain for each performance. The quality of PBTS productions is the direct result of volunteer talent guided by on-staff theatre professionals. Volunteers also provide a link with the community that can open and extend PBTS to new audiences and play an important role in public education.
Volunteers are placed according to their interest, experience and availability and the theatre’s needs.
There’s a wealth of opportunities for participation at PBTS. PBTS needs you!
