The Majestic Theatre Volunteer Opportunities

Concessions Help

 

Concessions Assistant is fast paced and fun - no cash handling needed! They assist the concessions lead during the performances by serving beverages and snacks before the show and during intermission. Concessions assistants are able to watch the show during their shift or get a free ticket coupon. They arrive 45 minutes before the show starts and stay past intermission (shifts are usually 2-3 hours).

As we sell alcohol during our performances, we require all concessions volunteers to be over 21 and have an OLCC permit, which we will help you obtain (please email mt_volunteeer@corvallisoregon.gov for more information.)


Interested in this assignment? You can sign up for open shifts on Better Impact or contact the Theatre Volunteer Coordinator at mt_volunteer@corvallisoregon.gov or 541.758.7827.  If you are not already an active Majestic Theater volunteer, please fill out an application form to join our program.

Street Team & Outreach

We are looking for volunteers to help promote the Majestic Theatre! Our Street Team puts up posters around town every other week. Street Team volunteers pick up a poster packet along a designated route. Poster pickup day is Thursday afternoon (1 - 4 pm). You can deliver the posters over the week and return the poster packet the following week. 

Occasionally we need outreach volunteers to help with tabling events, like the Fall Festival and outdoor summer events. If you are outgoing and love promoting the Majestic, you would be perfect for this role!

Costume volunteer positions include Costume Designer and Costume Assistants. The Costume Designer works with the director to create the physical manifestation of the characters. They must be able to sew, understand how to work on a budget, and collaborate with a team. We have lots of resources, both at the Majestic and in our community to pull great costumes. All designers work with the Director from either the proposal phase or just after and have their designs planned months before the show.

Costume Assistants assist with sewing, stitching, and fitting the costumes for the production. They may also help with quick changes during the show.

Backstage

There are plenty of opportunities to help out backstage! Stage crew help backstage with scene changes and sometimes operator the theater's fly systems. Stage Managers lead the tech and stage crew by preparing and communicating all the cues for the show. Assistant Stage Managers support the SM by enacting all the cues backstage while communicating via headset. Both SM and ASM require theater knowledge and backstage experience. You can shadow these roles if you are interested! Stage Crew is also a great introduction to the backstage.

Production Lead

This is for people interested in higher level positions in theater. This can be anything from directing a production, to assisting said director, or acting in the Stage Management team.

Directors are responsible for leading rehearsals and actors and creating an artistic direction for the production. The Stage Managers are responsible for managing the stage and keeping all information for the production, while upholding communication with designers and managing the backstage areas.

Scenic

This is great for people interested in getting crafty! The Scene Shop is where we build and store all our sets and props. We always need set builders, painters, and designers to help build or paint scenery, or design scenery for a production from scratch! The Scene Shop is located off-site, so volunteers must arrange their own transportation.

Performer

We select our actors through an open audition process and are always looking for new folks. We do not require any previous stage experience and have a variety of opportunities from large main stage musicals to our smaller Reader’s Theatre productions upstairs in the Lab Theatre. Often actors can pick up audition packets or check out scripts prior to auditions in our Business Office (open Tues-Fri, 12-5pm).

Commitment: Mainstage Shows: Evening rehearsals 4 to 5 times per week for 2-3 hours over a period of 2-4 months.

Reader’s Theatre Shows: Six to eight two hour rehearsals over the course of one month, no memorization required as shows are done with scripts in hand.

Ten Tiny Dances

The Ten Tiny Dances® presents edgy new work by local choreographers as they face the challenge of creating dance for a stage that is 4 feet x 4 feet x 1.5 feet high. Director Mishele Mennett participated in Ten Tiny Dances® in Pennsylvania and now brings this unique venue to Corvallis. Originally created in Portland, Oregon, in 2002, by Mike Barber, Ten Tiny Dances® continues to be produced by Mr. Barber, and others, with permission.  You’ll see ballet, modern dance, contact improv, tap, Chinese, and Indian classical dance, each compressed to its essence. In the lobby, you will be treated to a companion Tiny Art Show, coordinated by AliceAnn Eberman. Please come and experience this intense and uplifting tiny event!
