You will find that volunteering at a theater provides a creative outlet in addition to a new circle of friends. Click on the link associated with the theater at which you would like to volunteer to learn about the various opportunities available. Apply online or give them a call. You may need to be patient and persistent; the cast and crew works hard to get the next play on stage and sometimes calls are not answered and messages not returned unintentially. Usually this means, they really need your help!


If you are a theater in the DFW area that utilizes volunteers and would like to be included in this list, let us know!
