Not everyone is an actor! If you're enthusiastic, hardworking and would love to be involved with a community theatre group, there are many diverse volunteering opportunities with Leongatha Lyric Theatre. Here are a few of the areas where you could be involved.
Many technical areas have to come together to bring off a successful production, and they all need enthusiastic people. They include: design (set, sound, lights); set construction (painting, carpentering, or being a general handy person); operating (lights and sound); stage management; general crewing during the season; bumping in and out of the theatre.
Depending on the production, this can involve finding furniture or other items, creating special props from scratch, repairing or painting materials. It's a great job for inventive, resourceful people. Sometimes a Props person may also be a crew member or assistant stage manager, and responsible for the properties during the running of the show.
We are always looking for people who can design, make and repair costumes. We also have a large costume store, and would welcome people interested in maintaining it.
Front of House
If you enjoy dealing with customers, why not consider helping with Front of House during our productions? There's work in the Box Office, in the bar, selling programmes, and ushering.
At various stages of the year, we need people who can help with mail-outs and other one-off administrative tasks.
Do you have an interest in publicising productions? Do you have contacts that might be useful in promoting a production? Can you help with poster distribution? Do you have graphic design, drawing or photographic skills? Would you like to design a poster or a banner? There are numerous ways in which volunteers can contribute to publicity and marketing.
We always have an opening night supper for our productions. Are you a genius at producing tasty finger food on a small budget?
Fundraising and Sponsorship
If you have skills and contacts that could help our fundraising and sponsorship efforts, we'd love to talk to you.
Whatever your area of interest, there's bound to be something enjoyable to do with Leongatha Lyric Theatre. All you need to do is ask by contacting us.
