If you want to take on this role for one of our productions, you’ll be onstage and a part of the cast! Therefore, you’ll be expected to come to rehearsals every week. In addition to learning stage direction and choreography along with the students, you’ll also have the opportunity to lead warm-ups and theatre games.
"Everything's enjoyable in Anchorless. The kids are energetic, and there's always something to learn from each one of them. It's neat to see how each student learns at their own pace and how the volunteers adapt to each one of their learning styles."
-Aaron Henschel, Performance Volunteer
If you can’t commit to attending weekly rehearsals but are still interested in being involved, this opportunity is perfect for you. You’ll be assigned a job within a group that helps to put on a production backstage. You could be assigned lights, sound, costume changes, or props. You will be expected to attend rehearsals the week before the show (four or five days).
"Volunteering for Anchorless during tech week was a great opportunity for me to connect with the students during the most nerve wrecking part of the process. While being on sound for Willy Wonka, I was able to give the students their chance to be heard while doing what they love. It was a beautiful process to see them flourish in their performances and become comfortable with technical elements that professional actors still struggle with."
- Leona Pickard, Tech Volunteer
Set and Costume Design Team
If you have a busy schedule and feel as though you wouldn’t be a committed performance or tech volunteer, you can help with the visual aspect of the production! You’ll be a part of a group that selects costumes, plans the sets, and helps construct the backdrops. We’ll make sure that your job on this team is flexible with your schedule.
"For the past two years, I’ve been designing sets and costumes for Anchorless, and it’s been a fun, rewarding experience. The looks on our hard working actors’ faces when they get to see the sets or try on their costumes for the first time is the best feeling in the world!"
- Sharon Siegel, Costume Designer
