The success of Circle Theatre is based in part by unending support and dedication of our countless volunteers. Circle Theatre is truly a “community theatre,” from the actors on stage and the crew working behind the scenes to the costume sewers, set-builders, technicians, event staffers, and even the Board of Directors – everywhere you look, you will find committed Circle Theatre volunteers.
Utilizing the talents of each one of our volunteers, Circle Theatre provides a variety of opportunities for involvement. We are always looking for new and enthusiastic volunteers to add to the Circle ranks! There is room for any level of experience, we truly have a place for everyone, and if you have the desire to be involved, we will teach you what you need to know!
