Sometimes the volunteer needs of a community theater can be fairly specific. However, community theater has always been considered to be a beginning point of training in theater jobs and potential employment. Though this might seem self-serving, and it is to an extent, it is also because the educational aspect of the business of community theatre is considered to be an extremely important responsibility.
We want to have a large number of people in the our community feel that we are their home for arts and involvement. To that end, we attempt to educate and train community members in what we do on all levels of participation and areas of interest
One thing we are very good at is allowing people to enter into the world of theater performance and production at any level they may be comfortable in. Should you want to learn how to do props, move scenery, design, act or direct, or get involved in any other type of backstage job, we can give you a way to do that. On-hand training is available through every production we mount. Even if you simply enjoy serving the needs of our patrons and would like to learn how to be a ticket taker, box office, concessions staff member, or become a House Manager, our training processes will give you the knowledge and confidence to quickly enter the arena of volunteering for CHT.
To get involved in any of these opportunities, send us a message showing us what you wish to learn and we'll find a way to get you involved at your convenience through the training practices we use. We hope to see you soon!
In the meantime, please refer to the following training information:
As you are all aware, The Theatre is temporarily closed and the 2020 season has been interrupted because of the shutdown, and it is not clear when the ban on public gatherings will be lifted. The Green Room Gang is also cancelled for this season, although we are offering a Virtual mini-camp workshop the week of July 6-10. The End of Year Annual Report(s) is forthcoming.
We look forward to being together again! Stay safe and healthy!
