OCT welcomes all interested
volunteers! Some areas of need are listed
below. Please contact Mary Wetherbee at Mary@octheatre.org or call (541) 684.6988 with your inquiries.
Volunteers earn free tickets to productions during the regular season!
Volunteer Areas: Administration: General office support, data entry and lookup, research, filing, and more. Volunteers generally assist approximately 2 hours/week.
Office: Ticket sales to the
public during the run of each production (Sept. - June). We ask that Box Office volunteers commit to one day a week for a regular 2.5-hour shift (Tuesdays - Saturdays). Box Office volunteers are also asked to attend one annual meeting. Training is provided!
Marketing/Press: Press release writing and submission; graphic design; business outreach; press kit
development; social media management; and more. Volunteers generally assist approximately 4 hours/week.
Opening Night Preparation: Cleaning the lobby and theatre; preparing reception spaces; and more. Help us get ready for the big opening night for each production! Daytime of opening, approximately 2-5 hours;October 23, November 25, January 13, April 14 and May 19.
Production: Creation of sets, props, and costumes; light and sound board
operation; and more. Positions require NO previous experience - we will teach you
everything you need to know! Volunteers generally assist approximately 2-4 hours/week during production weeks, depending on interests and production needs. Production volunteers need to have some availability between 9am-6pm on weekdays.
Ushering: Work under the direction of House Managers, take tickets, seat patrons, assist House Managers during intermission and after the show is over. We ask that ushers attend one annual meeting for an overview of the season and usher responsibilities. Ushers get to see the show the night they volunteer, an approximately 3.5 hour commitment. Most ushers assist once per production -- about one show per month, September - June. For those who like to plan ahead: our ushers can sign up for their preferred volunteer evenings a month in advance!
