Volunteer at Puppet Showplace Theater


Volunteers are an essential part of the Puppet Showplace team, supporting our operations and enabling us to extend our reach into the community.

If you are looking for ways to get involved, we would love to connect with you. Whether you have only a couple of hours or many more, there are opportunities throughout the year for all ages, families and groups to get involved!

On-going volunteer needs:

  • Community Outreach: Spread the word about programming, distribute flyers for shows and upcoming events, answer questions at community event info tables, connect us with your child's school for residencies or teaching opportunities.

  • Fundraising & Special Events: Volunteer for winter gift wrapping drive, plan and implement spring fundraiser, solicit donations from local businesses, help set up for member events.

  • Artist Support: Provide housing and hospitality for out-of-town performers, prepare food for Puppet Slams, assist teaching artists with materials prep for craft activities.

  • Theater Operations: Organize files, assist with mailings or research projects.

  • Facility: Assist with cleaning and maintenance, paint, garden, create puppet displays, etc.
