Spokane Civic Theatre needs volunteers to produce plays.

January 23, 2011

A unique and rare volunteer opportunity is at the Spokane Civic Theatre.

Founded in 1947, the Spokane Civic Theatre is one of the oldest community theatre companies in the country. After moving multiple times during its history, the theatre is currently located on 1020 N. Howard St.

This year, they will be performing Don’t Dress for Dinner (January 14-30), Nunsense (February 18-March 6), Buddy: The Buddy Holiday Story Revival (July 22-31) along with other productions later in the year.

Like many community theatres, Spokane Civic Theatre relies on volunteers to put on a production.

“Spokane Civic Theatre has more than 1,000 volunteers who serve as actors, backstage crews, box officers, house managers, hosts and hostesses, ushers, and board members. They contribute approximately 55,000 hours each year.” according to the theatre’s website.

Buddy: The Buddy Holiday Story coming in July to the Spokane Civic Theatre

For those who have no experience with theatre there are still opportunities to volunteer by:

  • Ushering for a show
  • Selling raffle tickets
  • House managing
  • Operating the box office
  • Putting up posters
  • Preparing mailings
  • Cleaning up the grounds

This is a great way to interact with the arts and volunteer at the same time.

    Great post, Caitlyn. Just one thing I noticed: The Buddy Holly Story was performed last July. I saw it, and it was awesome!

      Your right, it was performed last year however they are reviving it this year. Changed some wording to make that clearer. So if you want to see it again it will be coming back. The pictures made it look like tons of fun.
