And WRCT is more than just acting. For every person we have onstage, we need 2 behind the scenes making things work! Without our crews, there are no plays. It's how we keep COMMUNITY THEATRE going. And if you give it a try you realize it's a lot of FUN, too! Just like acting! Call 715-421-0435 if you are interested.
Contact the WRCT office to learn more about each of these fun backstage jobs!
There's a lot of areas where we could use your talents. We are looking for people to serve on Special Committees that include:
Hospitality/Concession Sales—Be the first to greet patrons as they come to the theater. Set up and serve beverages and cookies prior to the show and during intermission. Help sell any retail items available at the time.
Usher—Hand out programs, take tickets, or show people to their seats. Make sure the theater is in tip-top shape when you leave. This fun job includes a seat in the audience for most of the show!
Custodial—Sweeping, vacuuming, light cleaning – these things are needed periodically in everyone’s house. Generally, the theater must be cleaned before performances, and all-round custodial work is needed at all times.
Program Ad Sales—If you are more interested in the business side of things, we could use your help in selling program ads. Materials and schedules are available.
Event Preparation and Planning—Special events need special plans, and if you’re the creative type, we’re looking for you. WRCT participates in many special events throughout the year, and we could use your help.
Facility Maintenance—like to help with painting, sorting supplies and playing with tools? Here’s the job for you.
Studio Theatre—The Studio is the place for unique performances, like the WRCT Stage Hams Improv Group—or for meetings, receptions, play readings, etc. If you have ideas for the Studio or would like to host an event of your own, let us know.
Memorial—Organize the designation of memorials for people that others have known and loved.
We are also looking for people willing to help with the following Administrative tasks:
Database Management—If you like data entry and maintenance, here’s the job for you. Knowledge of Excel is required.
Graphic Design— Creative on the computer? We can use your skills to help with posters, programs, and other special needs.
Ticket Sales— Volunteers are needed at certain times of the season for ticket sales. If you're not afraid of computers, we can teach you this wonderful, easy program.
Office Volunteer—Answer phones, greet visitors, and just generally keep the place running when Cory and/or Ellen are not able to be there.
Miscellaneous Office Projects—Sometimes you just need a few extra hands. This could be anything from filing to typing to stuffing envelopes, you name it. Short term projects available here.
