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
MMAS marketing and public engagement
Serving on Fundraising Committees (Gala committee, fundraising for annual and capital campaigns)
Theater and Gallery upkeep and maintenance
Assisting for other special events that MMAS may hold during the year

Please note volunteer positions may require training or 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. As a volunteer you are an ambassador for MMAS and should treat guests , participants and other volunteers with utmost courtesy and respect. Show volunteers are not often seated for performances, but MMAS offers a special night for them to see a performance free.

If you are interested in a volunteer position, send us an email at info@mmas.org. Let us know your name, contact info (address and phone number), what you’re interested in, and what your availability is. Feel free to use this form.

  1. Hello MMAS,

    My name is Kim Kogut, and I am interested in volunteering with your set crew team. I am an art school graduate, have several years of theatre experience under my belt, and also participated in my high school set crew for two years. I am comfortable with painting and using power tools, putting sets together and breaking them down. I would love to be a part of a set crew team again and lend my skills to your productions.

    I’ve attached my online portfolio for you to browse if you would like to see some of my personal work. Please let me know if you are interested in having me.

    Thank you,

    Kim Kogut
