Volunteers interested in working the back stage of an opera house are needed at the West Bay Opera House for this season's productions. Three times a year (mid-October, mid- February and the end of May) West Bay Opera House produces full operas in the Lucie Stern Community Theatre in Palo Alto.

For each production, volunteers have the opportunity to build and assemble sets, learn how to rig lights and equipment, get a first hand look into opera's behind-the-scenes, and become a part of a huge, theatrical, and artistic community.

Being part of the stage crew means using stairs, ladders, and carrying heavy objects (30+ lbs.); being physically capable is essential for working backstage. The stage team is interested in people that have patience, are ready to work hard, remain focused through an entire performance, and are dedicated to attending all necessary rehearsals (6) and performances(4). A basic understand of carpentry and the ability to use power tools would be great but are not necessary.
