Learn More About Volunteer Opportunities

In addition to directly reaching out to the staff of our shows at the Playhouse or at Limelight (per above contact information), we encourage you to join our SVCT Facebook Group which is intended for SVCT supporters interested in participating in some way. Through the group you will learn of opportunities from set construction to ushering to participating in an orchestra to more.

There are also opportunities for participation on the Board of Directors or on SVCT committees. Please contact the Board President at president@SVCT.org to express your interest and to obtain additional information.
