BOX OFFICE VOLUNTEERS
Box office volunteers work about 2 hours before performances and customarily can leave just after intermission when many season subscriptions and tickets for future performances are purchased. The only thing required of a box office volunteer is good customer service and a little computer familiarity, as you answer phones, provide information to patrons and sell tickets.
All actors who appear on CRP’s stages are volunteers, giving their time and talent to ensure top-quality theater experiences for San Juan Capistrano’s play-going public. CRP offers a wealth of opportunity for creativity and growth, guided by our professional staff. The Playhouse encourages newcomers and takes pride in the fact that virtually every production marks the debut of at least one actor at CRP.
You, too, can become part of service and fun for the entire family. Auditions are usually held 6-8 weeks before the opening of a show. Rehearsals generally run Monday through Thursday evenings (Sometimes on Fridays too) and usually one weekend day just prior to Opening. Mainstage performances run Thursday-Friday evenings, with a matinee on Sunday.
Our Backstage Volunteers make sure everyone on-stage looks good. We need carpenter skills to build sets; painting and artistic skills to make the sets pretty; property (props) people to find that special prop and maintain our props and set pieces in good order; costume builders to help find and fit costumes; stage managers to keep the show running once it has opened; technical people for lights and sound design and operation…. It takes a dedicated backstage crew to successfully mount and produce each show. Tell us what you like to do, and it’s probably something we need done today! Currently, the CRP volunteers have been busy at work cleaning, restoring, refreshing and updating many areas in the theatre as we get ready for the return of our patrons and our actors. Expect great improvements and changes when we reopen! Am updated lobby for our patrons. New dressing rooms for our actors and so much more!
