Stage Manager

Interested in being a stage manager for an upcoming production? The SM is responsible for the distribution of the rehearsal schedule, contact list, and coordination of the lighting and sound for every show. The SM also works closely with the director to help actors learn their lines and is also responsible for the opening and closing of the theater on a nightly basis. Previous experience is preferred.


Set Builder

Help create new "worlds" on stage! You don't need any experience to be a Set Builder (we'll even teach you about carpentry and power tools, if you want)-- just a willingness to learn and have fun while we create the set for the next production.


Lighting Technicians

Ever wanted to see what goes on behind the scenes? And be a part of it?

Light Technicians have one of the most important jobs in theatre: making sure everyone can see. They also are responsible for setting the mood--by dimming the lights, turning on (and moving) the spotlight, making the audience sit in the dark (!) and more.


Behind The Scenes

How about helping out behind the scenes?

Come join the longest running community theater in Berkeley; you'll get to see the show for free, you'll get to hang out with cool people, and you'll get to see your magic happen onstage. No experience needed! We'll train you!

Lobby Assistants

If you appreciate live theatre, we really need you!

Lobby Assistants greet patrons, take tickets, hand out programs and set out concessions for shows. It helps to be friendly; Lobby Assistants are the first impression people have about the show.
