The show must go on
Tehachapi Community Theatre Spotlight
February 29, 2020
The show must go on ... and it will with your help. Until recently, I did not know how many people (and hours) it took to put on a LIVE community play. When I discovered the amount, my overwhelming response was "WOW." This is where you come in. Even though we have a number of dedicated volunteers, we need more! We, the two community theater volunteer coordinators, are extending you an invitation to join us in growing our volunteer pool on Saturday, March 14, at 10 a.m. at the BeeKay Theatre located at 110 S. Green St. at our casual "meet and greet."
We are holding this meet and greet so all of you and other new volunteers can join in with present volunteers and members of Tehachapi Community Theatre. In addition to meeting each other, experts in each field will be there to explain their jobs and skills, as well as giving tours of their sections in the theater and to answer your questions. If you are interested in any given area, you will then be connected with a mentor who will teach, guide and train you as the future plays unfold. A big bonus is volunteers get to see the shows for free. And, no previous skills are required. We welcome anyone and will happily guide you on this journey.
Following is a list of the different areas in which we need help. This list is quite extensive and should have something for everyone: social media, website, publicity, graphic artists, secretarial, membership, producers, directors and patrons, cashiers, house managers, ushers, costumes, hair and make-up, choreography, vocals, technology, lights, sounds, audio, set designs, building, dressing, painting and moving, muscles, props, crafters, designers, cooks, party hosts, fundraisers, stage managers, back stage managers, techs, and directors and, of course, actors. Your own talents and skills not listed above may also be utilized.
We hope we have piqued your interest in helping our future shows go on. If you know someone else that might be interested in these opportunities, let them know or better yet, come together.
Here's looking forward to seeing you at the "Meet and Greet." If you have any questions, feel free to call (661) 855-4101.
