Volunteers!

We need volunteers to help with our upcoming 2019 season. We have many great pieces of art in the works but it is not possible without you! As a non-profit we cant thrive without your help—join of us in bringing great, accessible art to the city of Davis!

What We Need:

  • Box Office Officer

  • Concessioners (we just made that up)

  • Wardrobe

  • Stage Hands

  • Ushers (Yeah!)

Our greatest needs from volunteers are typically on show nights with helping the audience purchase tickets, find their seats and to sell concessions. On the other side of our needs we have people who help the actors backstage including but not limited to stage managers (one of the most important job in the theatre), costumers to help actors with their quick changes and more intricate costumes, and lighting and sound (sounds scary but it’s a simple but important job!)

But Also, Specialists…

Our other needs come from a more precise need in theatre. These are the more specific skill set volunteers who have experience in a certain trade or craft.

These include:

  • Carpenters

  • Painters

  • Costume Designers

  • Set Designers

While these jobs have lead people who get paid to do the more complicated and tempered aspects of this job, they’ll always be a time when more help is needed.

So far all we’ve done is ask what you can do for us, but I think now we answer the question of what we can do for YOU!

A great benefit that not many people know about when it comes to volunteering is the amount of skills you can develop. Whether it’s grant writing, group management or public speaking, our team of experienced artists can help you foster skills you didn’t even know you had and you’ll be able to implement those skills in real life. Not to mention how amazing our letters of recommendation can be!

While volunteer work isn’t the most glamourous job, it still has plenty of benefits. One of our biggest points of pride as Bike City is that we develop a genuine community between each other. Between teaming up with our friends at the other theatre companies in the area or connecting to local businesses we strive for creating the most comprehensive network of artists and good, honest people that serves no other purpose than helping one another.

Theatre, in it’s very nature, cannot exist without people from all walks of life. The actor needs the writer, the writer needs the director, the director needs the designer, the designer needs the builder, and so on and so on. All these people come together to put on a show for the love of the craft. They need the theatre, and the theatre needs you.

Also, free swag and food!
