There’s no place like Oz! This holiday season, The Northwest Children's Theater is proud to present munchkins, flying monkeys, witches, and more in our holiday production of The Wizard of Oz. We're seeking friendly, upbeat volunteers to help make eeryone's theatrical experience magical.

Ushers (teens and older) are volunteers who guide patrons to their seats, run concessions stands, and help clean up after the show.

Program passers (ages 4+) are volunteers who pass out programs as patrons enter the theater. They may also help remind patrons not to climb on the stage.

This is a great opportunity for families to volunteer together! We ask that all volunteers under age 13 be accompanied by an adult and that solo volunteers ages 13-17 bring an adult to meet with the house manager before their first volunteer shift. Training is provided the day of your volunteer shift, and scheduling is flexible. Typical volunteer shifts are 3.5 hours. All volunteers get to watch the performance for free!

Join us and four unlikely friends in Oz as we entertain, educate, and enrich the lives of young audiences. Choose your volunteer shift today!
