Our success depends on our volunteers.

Are you:

  • Outgoing, friendly, like to get involved?

  • Have some spare time, and would like to do something productive?

  • Do you have skills that you would like to put to good use, and would you enjoy sharing your knowledge with others? Or maybe,

  • You’re just eager to become involved in the theatre!

Come spend some quality time with people who share your passion for the performing arts, and be a part of the this rewarding pastime!

Come talk to us about being a Volunteer at the Manoa Valley Theatre!

From actors and crew members, to scene painters and ushers, every single one of our volunteers plays an important role. We are always on the lookout for interested and enthusiastic people to join our talented and hardworking team of volunteers.


There are many areas where your abilities may be in demand. For example:


Open auditions are held for every Manoa Valley Theatre production for interested community members. Previous acting experience is not required. Actors must attend all rehearsals and performances. (See production run dates on this page.)  Read our “Audition Insights” by clicking here.

Technical & Production

Stage management; set, sound, and lighting design; and technical crews. Learn how to run a spotlight, or create a special effect! Be a part of the Design Team! (Some of these jobs may require prior knowledge and/or experience)

Set Construction & Painting

Carpentry, electrical, handy man, paint styles, and effects. There’s always something to do in the scene shop!


Researching and sourcing of furniture, fixtures and decor items. Creating new props; and cleaning, repairing and modifying old ones.


Machine sewing, hand work, cutting, repairs, laundry and fittings. The Costume Shop is always a very busy place.

Front of House

Ushering. Spend one night with us, and see the show for free!


Filing, answering phones, word processing, mail-outs, and general office duties. Great for the occasional volunteer.


There are many other areas to help out in too, like reading scripts, marketing, and social events, so if you have a particular skill or area of interest, ask us! We are sure you will enjoy yourself while putting your skills to work with the Manoa Valley Theatre!
