We’re always looking for people to help out behind the scenes during our productions! We have two productions per year – at the end of April and in the middle of November. No experience is necessary, as we will train. If you’re interested in learning (or already know) how to build sets, including painting, or if your interest lies with the technical side, like doing lights or sound, we want YOU! If you’re interested in helping out, or want to find out more information, please contact our President, Stephanie Kauffman, who is listed on the Contact Us page on this website. Or, you can come out to one of our meetings. We meet on the second Tuesday of each month, at 7pm, at the William Glesby Centre, 11 2nd St. N.E., Portage. Use green stage door on west side. See meeting dates above.
