Cygnet participates in many local arts festivals and other outreach opportunities. Become an Ambassador and let everyone in the city know where we are and what we do. As an Ambassador, you will work closely with staff to help answer general questions, describe upcoming plays, and hand out materials.
Special Events Volunteer
With our annual Gala, OUT @ Cygnet nights, Special Forums and Donor Events, there’s always a party that needs your help. If you enjoy pouring drinks, welcoming and registering guests, creating perfect food table displays, or setting up and cleaning up, join us!
With all of our special events and at least six Opening Nights per year, there are plenty of mailings to be done. Our envelope stuffers/folders/stampers/sealers enjoy working with a group of other volunteers, making a big difference in our communications with our audience.
The beautiful costumes begin in the minds of Cygnet’s incredible resident designers. The building of these costumes, as well as their maintenance, is often done by a talented group of sewers. If sewing skills and a love for theatre costumes are yours, join our Cygnet costume volunteers!
Cygnet Swans show the casts and crews how much we love them. Join the Swans for the fun of providing weekly snacks/treats that the actors/crew can enjoy in the greenroom before shows. Also help host a dinner for the cast and crew of each production.
Please note that our ushering list is full and we are not currently accepting volunteers for this role. We strongly encourage you to get involved in one of the many other fun branches of our Cygnet volunteer team.
