Volunteer Opportunities

Raise You Hand for the Arts / Volunteer at MMAS

We are a community-based non-profit organization that exists only because of people like you! We need volunteers who love the arts, enjoy making friends and want to be a part of our creative, fun, vibrant culture. Our volunteers do everything: act, direct, build sets, help backstage and run tech; staff the box office and concessions. We couldn’t function without the ongoing, collaborative help of our volunteers. Last year, volunteers gave more than 32,000 hours to MMAS Black Box Theater.

MMAS can always use volunteers in the following areas. If you are inexperienced, we will teach you!

  • FRONT OF HOUSE
  • Box Office staff
  • Ushers
  • Greeters
  • Tip Trained Bartenders
  • Concessions sales
  • BACK STAGE: SHOW PREPARATION and RUN
  • Set Building & Painting
  • Set tear down (strike) crew
  • OTHER TASKS
  • Serving on Fundraising Committees, including
  • Soliciting donations for annual gala
  • Soliciting for our annual and capital campaigns
  • Cleaning the theater and gallery areas
  • Assisting for other special events that MMAS may hold during the year

Please note volunteer positions may require training and a commitment to a specified number of hours. Volunteers may be required to stand for moderately long periods of time, move quickly, and move up and down stairs easily. They must also have good vision (either with or without vision aids) to see in occasional dim light.

Show volunteers are not often seated for performances, but MMAS offers a special night for them to see a performance free.

As a volunteer you are an ambassador for MMAS and should treat guests , participants and other volunteers with utmost courtesy and respect.
