Home Made Theater has a place for everyone! From back stage to box office, from on-stage to the control booth – just about everyone working on a production is a volunteer. If you always want to get involved behind the scenes or make your big break on-stage – this is your chance! No experience necessary, just a willingness to learn.
Some jobs require only a few hours’ time for a couple of hands, while others require a large number of hours with many people. Our staff and seasoned volunteers are happy to teach you anything you need to know.
Home Made Theater offers acting opportunities for everyone: from stage veterans to those who have never “trod the boards” and would like to learn! To be the first to know about all our exciting opportunities for actors, keep an eye out here and get on the List today!
Our locally sourced acting company is made up entirely of volunteers and auditions are open to the public. You can follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to get out audition notices. We will also post our notices here.

A large part of Home Made Theater’s success is due to the important work of volunteers. It takes the time, talent and energy of close to two hundred dedicated individuals to accomplish the work required to mount our productions each season. Volunteers work alongside each other and trained professionals, learning the behind the scenes aspects of theater. Whatever your availability and experience, Home Made Theater volunteers are always welcome and appreciated!
There is no experience necessary for the majority of these tasks, but if you have some experience, that’s great! Our staff and seasoned volunteers are happy to teach you anything you need to know. Many of our most skilled volunteers came to us originally with no theater experience whatsoever.
There are four general volunteer “areas:” Patron Services, Behind the Scenes, Administrative, and Creative Team*. Each is absolutely crucial to the running of Home Made Theater as a whole, and help in all areas are needed. Click on a job title in the list below to get a more detailed job description!
*Creative Team is the only area that requires prior experience.

Patron Services volunteers work directly with the audience. They are the people with whom the public interacts. For that reason, it is essential that they be Home Made Theater’s Good Will Ambassadors.
