Below is a list of ways you can volunteer with CSC

  • House Party
    • You could have a House Party at your home. During the first week of rehearsals for a Centenary Stage Company Professional Play, you would host a party at your home to help introduce people to CSC and the upcoming play. You would invite people to the party and their ticket for attendance is to bring at least one other person who has never seen a Centenary Stage Company production.  Also in attendance would be various people associated with the upcoming production such as actors, the director and/or playwright. The food and cocktails would be provided by Centenary Stage Company.

  • Informal Outreach 
    • You would help us reach out to the community to let them know about our events. This could include assistance with calling people ("Did you know that...") or it could mean promoting our upcoming show and its discounts to schools, clubs and/or groups. You could even be responsible for organizing a fund raising campaign with one of these groups in support of Centenary Stage Company. Volunteer your time to pick up and hang promotional signs for upcoming events in your place of business or school. Add promotional ad or write-up in your newsletter or on the back of your school menu or on a bulletin board. There are numerous ways to creatively outreach to your local community.

  • Ushers
    • Our ushers form the backbone of our front of house providing support to our front of house management before and during all performances. Whether collecting tickets, handing out programs, helping patrons to their seats or selling concessions, our Ushers are vital to the success of every Centenary Stage Company event. All CSC ushers see the show they're working for free in exchange for supporting the arts in this way.

  • Housing for Actors
    • From time to time CSC is in need of housing for our out-of-state actors performing in our productions. If you have a room to spare for a few days a week for the 3 week rehearsal, please consider "Sponsoring" a CSC actor with housing. Join the CSC family of supporters! Your name will appear in the program as an official sponsor, you will be invited to special events related to the production, and CSC will provide you with complimentary tickets for you and your family for the show!

  • Fundraising Gala
    • Assist with the organization of a fundraising gala including working with local business donations to go into raffles, assisting in the organization of the event and identifying and contacting guests.

  • Office Volunteers
    • Assist with preparing mailers, phone coverage or filing an hour or two a week. You could also help with the creation of email newsletters, creation and sharing of social media content, broadcast messages, as well as, group mail lists.

  • Tell a Friend
    • Perhaps the most basic way in which we would appreciate your support, however, often times the most effective. Simply tell a friend about us or invite them to go to a performance. Live music, theater and/or dance can make for an exciting and memorable gift!
