Coaster Theatre, a non-profit organization since 2001, is always looking for community members that want to get involved with the theatre. Never worked with a theatre before? That’s okay, we are more than happy to provide training.

Ways you can volunteer at the Coaster Theatre:
BECOME A COASTER ACTOR
Donate your time and talent to be a part of one of the Coaster Theatre’s plays or musicals. Auditions are held a few months prior to the show opening and we are always looking for talented individuals to grace our stage.
Never been on stage but had dreams of being in the spotlight. Don’t worry, get your feet wet as a part of the ensemble in one of our musicals or a smaller role in a play. It’s a great way to catch the acting bug!
Follow us on Facebook or Twitter for audition notices or check our website for information.
WORK BEHIND THE SCENES OF A SHOW
We are always looking for dedicated people with attention to detail to work as Stage Managers, Light Board Operators, Sound Operators and backstage crew.
USHERS OR CONCESSIONS
Acting or singing not for you but you still want to be a part of the theatre? Why not volunteer to usher at one of our shows or work the concession stand? Greet patrons at the door, help them find their seats or find a delicious cookie or beverage. Every show we look for 2 ushers and 1 person to work the concession stand. Each person gets a free ticket to that evening’s performance! Contact the box office at 503-436-1242 to sign up for ushering or concessions.
COME TO A STRIKE PARTY
At the end of every show run we get a group of actors and volunteers together to take down the old set and help get the stage set for our next show. We are looking for “handy” types to help with moving large set pieces, take down flats and move platforms.
Not the “handy” type? We also have costume and other less strenuous projects during the strike party.
