Volunteer Opportunities:     Let's put the "Community" back in Community Theatre!
Have you ever dreamed of working in Show Biz?  The Chesterfield Community Theatre is always looking for volunteers to join our collaborative family-- no previous experience required, but enthusiasm and curiosity are a must!  We are seeking volunteers to contribute in costume and prop construction, publicity, rehearsal support, concessions, and fundraising events.  As productions evolve, specific needs will also be posted on this webpage.  For more information, please email Artistic Director Rebecca Barringhaus at rebecca.barringhaus@gwrymca.org

Stage/Production Management Oppurtunities
Stage managers are the invisible stars of live theatre... if a backstage crew is at the top of their game, the show goes so smoothly that you'd never know they were there!  During each Chesterfield Community Theatre production, 3-4 student volunteers are selected to serve as stage crew.  These middle school, high school, or college level students attend all rehearsals, helping to develop the "technical" side of the production: organizing and constructing props, collecting and fitting costumes, choreographing scene changes, and assisting the director.  During performances, armed with headset and flashlight, they disappear into the wings to act out their own impressive show backstage.  For information or to apply for a Stage/Production Management slot, please email Artistic Director Rebecca Barringhaus at rebecca.barringhaus@gwrymca.org
