Title: Install New Theatrical Lighting at Non-profit Community Theater

We are looking for 2-3 volunteers for each of the days listed above to help install new lighting instruments at a non-profit community theater, The Actors Theatre Workshop (ATW) in preparation for the fall theater season and our award- winning after-school theater-arts education program, which has been serving homeless and at-risk youth living in NYC's temporary housing facilities since 1995.

We are using a grant to buy a new computer lighting board and new lighting instruments to upgrade our theatrical lighting installation! This important project will help us better illuminate our own programs and productions . . . and help us attract new rental clients to support our nonprofit mission of arts education to at-risk youth and people from all walks of life.

Volunteers will be overseen by ATW’s Lighting Director and several professional electricians.

This will be a unique and meaningful project for volunteers to participate in. Under the supervision of ATW’s Lighting Director and professional electricians, volunteers will:

  • Take existing lighting equipment down from 10’ ceilings
  • Unrun all the cables from the lighting closet
  • Pull everything out of the closet and build it back up from scratch
  • Remove unnecessary gear
  • Test all existing and new lighting equipment and cables
  • Install a new (heavy) dimmer rack on upper shelf.
  • Set-up a lower shelf for storage
  • Install House Lights over the audience with incandescent light bulbs
  • Install Work Light system.
  • Do light cleaning before and after project- dusting, sweeping, mopping.
  • Lifting and climbing on a ladder is required for much of this work. We have 10’ceilings and therefore use 6’ or 8’ ladders.

Other important info:

  • For the safety of our community program members and staff health, we ask that volunteers who sign-up be fully vaccinated. No exceptions.
  • Participants must be okay to do heavy lifting and go up and down 6-8’ ladders
  • Participants must dress comfortably: sneakers / flat shoes and clothes they can move around in.
  • Volunteers can attend for one day or all days but should arrive on-time and stay for the entire time they sign-up for.
  • If a volunteer cannot come or stay for the whole event, we'd appreciate that s/he release their spot as soon as they know to allow someone who can stay for the whole event the opportunity to sign-up.
  • Please bring a can-do attitude to the work for the day!
