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.
To successfully create and produce each show requires a dedicated backstage crew. Our backstage volunteers make sure everyone and everything on stage looks good and runs perfectly. We welcome volunteers with carpenter skills to build sets, and those with painting and artistic skills to make the sets pretty. Property (Props) volunteers help find special props for each production, and maintain the props and set pieces. Costume builders help find and fit costumes. Stage managers keep the show running once it has opened, and technical people handle lights, sound-design and operation. Tell us what you like to do, and it’s probably something we need doing! As we prepare for the return of our patrons and our actors, our current CRP volunteers have cleaned, restored and updated many areas in the theatre. The improvements include freshly-painted interior walls, an updated lobby, new dressing rooms for our actors and so much more!
