The Theatre relies on volunteers for its survival.

Volunteer jobs include:

Ushers – take tickets at the door, show latecomers to seats, provide help to exit in an emergency (heaven forbid) and tidy theatre at the end of an event.

Café Operators – cash register operators, café helpers, baristas,

Box Office – Ticket sales and money management Front of House –

Overseers of events – keeping an eye on café supplies, box office change, patrons issues, and making sure everyone is having a great theatre experience.

Technical Team – Lighting, sound desk operation, digital projector, video recording and much more. We need people with technical skills to present the performers who use the theatre in the best light,

Maintenance and Development – As with any old building there are always things that need repairs, painting, or replacing. Many hands make light work so the more people we have involved the less work, and more fun for everyone.

Events People – we need people to search out and assist with staging of events – whether they be live theatre, musical concerts, movies, fund raising events such as Arts Council balls, dances, dinner nights etc.

We’re not just a theatre, we’re an Arts Council, so anything goes. Full training in all aspects will be provided. Just fill in a membership form and indicate your preference, and we’ll have you up and running in no time. If you have any questions, ring one of our committee members and they will give you a tour, or fill you in on the details. Come and join our great team at Bowraville Theatre – you’ll never look back!
