Do ya wanna help create fantastic family theater? Then join Wild Swan in the usher, setup, or tear down crews. You can assist individuals, families, and groups to find their seats in Towsley Auditorium, create displays, or inventory and put away our items. Our 2019-20 season starts in October and we are accepting volunteers NOW!
You are generally the first smiling face someone sees when coming to a Wild Swan production, so we're looking for people who are professional, courteous, and enthusiastic. All volunteers are invited to find an open seat and enjoy the show if they like.
Introducing young children to live theater is an amazing experience. For many it's their first time seeing entertainment like this that isn't on a screen. Come have fun with us!

About Wild Swan Theater
6175 Jackson Rd. - Ste. B, Ann Arbor, MI 48103, US
Wild Swan Theater is dedicated to producing professional children's theater of the highest artistic quality and to making that theater accessible to low income, minority and disabled children through low ticket prices and innovative outreach programs.
Wild Swan Theater was founded in 1980. Since its inception, the company of professional adult actors, dancers, musicians, visual artists and American Sign Language interpreters has performed for hundreds of thousands of children. As well as many public performances in its home base of Ann Arbor, the company tours regularly to theaters, museums and public libraries as well as offering residencies and workshops at schools and hospitals serving disabled children statewide. Wild Swan has pioneered a number of audience accessibility measures for disabled individuals that are models in the state and have earned the praise of educators and health specialists across the country. All productions are performed in American Sign Language as well as spoken English with the signing completely integrated into the productions. A program for blind individuals includes pre-performance backstage "touch tours". Audio-description, a simultaneous description of staging, lights, and costumes, transmitted electronically to participating audience members during pauses in the dialogue, permits audience members who are blind or visually impaired to have access to all the visual elements of the production.
We'll work with your schedule.
