Are you interested in volunteering at the
Fargo-Moorhead Community Theatre?
Here are some reasons to get involved:
Learn a new skill. Woodworking, sewing, props, lighting — even ushering and ticket taking. No experience is necessary to work in any area.
Act on the stage. Professionals and amateurs are all invited to act at FMCT.
Make new friends. Volunteering at FMCT is a great place to start a new friendship or even a relationship. Make it a guys’ or gals’ night out.
Spend quality time with your family and friends or start a new tradition that will earn you tickets for the upcoming production in the process.
Community Service. Earn your community service hours for school, or give back to your community through time, not money.
Sense of pride and accomplishment. Bragging rights and seeing your work on stage! What could be more fulfilling?
What types of things can you volunteer to do?
Fargo-Moorhead Community Theatre and the Children’s Studio Theatre provide volunteers with many varieties of entertainment, so you can chose which venue suits your needs. We produce a least one show each month, sometimes two.
