Volunteer with SFFT!

Every year, a great group of people steps forward to fill our volunteer slots. They help build our sets, greet theater patrons and dinner guests, work the box office, take tickets, hand out programs and cushions, operate the concession stand, make popcorn, assist in preparing and serving dinners, represent SFFT at the parades and fairs, and help out with special events and work parties to maintain and improve the grounds and facilities. These volunteers are always fantastic - enthusiastic, cheerful, helpful, hard working. They play an essential role in making this organization a great success. We couldn't have done it without them - and we're truly grateful!

We have three main areas of volunteer opportunities throughout the year.

  • Summer Theater Production Season Volunteers
    • Show Day Volunteers
    • Parade and Fair Volunteers
    • Pre-Production / Post-Production Volunteers
  • Year 'round work party volunteers
  • Wreath-making event & other miscellaneous or special events & private parties

Summer Theater Volunteers

Show Day Volunteers

Looking for something fun to do this summer? We are always looking for volunteers during the summer as there are a minimum of ten volunteers needed for each show day. You are neither too young nor too old: there are tasks to suit every size, every age, and almost every disposition.

Volunteers are needed for the following positions during our upcoming theater season:

  • Ticket Takers
  • Program Ushers / Cushions
  • Concessions & Popcorn
  • Dinner Service
  • Box Office

This is a great opportunity for students needing volunteer hours, too! If you can join us or want more information, please email events@foresttheater.org or call to leave a message on our theater phone at (425) 736-7252 so that we can contact you.

Parade and Fair Staff

Part of each show season includes publicizing the show and SFFT at local parades, fairs and other events. In addition to participating cast and crew members, we can also use volunteers can walk along with our group, waving to the public and handing out show flyers and other materials.

We can also use volunteers at times to man our booth at some of the parades & fairs we attend, answering questions about our show and our organization, hand out flyers and membership applications, and general greet the public and let them know all about SFFT.

Pre/post-Production

Every year, we can use volunteers for a variety of behind-the-scenes areas related to preparing our annual production. We can always use people willing to help design, build and paint our sets. Our costumer often needs help with sewing, costume preparation and maintenance. We also have work parties to prepare the grounds and theater for opening. At the end of the season, help is appreciated for set tear-down, set piece & prop storage and general season close-down and battening the hatches for winter. For all of these areas, we are always on the lookout for volunteers to help us reach our goals.


Other Opportunities

Volunteering provides many opportunities to meet new people, work in a fun atmosphere and learn new skills while supporting musical theatre in our community. And when the work's done, relax and catch your breath. We usually fire up the barbeque or start dishing out lasagna. Contact us today to find out how you can fit into our dynamic volunteer team.
