Volunteers are very special members of the Hedgerow Theatre Family. We function as an ensemble where all work together. We can accommodate any amount of time you have to give, and almost any interest or skill set. We always need help ushering, answering phones, and light office work. If you like working with children, you can assist with our camps, classes, or childrens theatre shows. Work out your green thumb on our lovely grounds, help build a set or a costume, or work backstage on a production. If you have an interest in marketing, fundraising, accounting, cooking, or planning special events, let us know! We have no limitations on who can volunteer at Hedgerow, and we provide training for all who usher and answer phones. Call us soon, and come play in the Hedgerows!
