For every one person on stage in a Lyric Theatre production, there are at least three others who have contributed their behind-the-scenes talent to bring the show to life. Volunteers work with Lyric for many reasons. Some want to share a talent in sewing costumes or set building, some want to learn new skills and make new friends with a shared love of theatre.

Whether you have one hour to give or twenty, all we ask of our volunteers is their commitment and willingness to learn from one another. Joining Lyric Theatre is a great way to meet new people and share the excitement of producing a wide variety of productions for our community!

Volunteer Opportunities
Follow our social media accounts for opportunities as they become available, and check the page of our current Main Stage production when we are in season. If you don’t have time to volunteer, please consider becoming a sustaining member. Lyric Members help to support our theatre company in so many ways, and receive some great benefits.

For Current Volunteers
Crew Chiefs should be reporting the names and titles of volunteers for membership purposes, in lieu of traditional hour reporting. In the rare cases where you do not report directly to a Crew Chief in your capacity as a volunteer for Lyric Theatre Company, please click the following link to submit volunteer hours online: Lyric Volunteer Hours Submission Portal.
