Volunteer with Garfield Theatre!

Get to know your student’s friends and the wonderful group of parents and guardians who support them. There are opportunities to fit any interests and schedule.

Support Productions

Rehearsal Snacks. Provide healthy after-school snacks for Spring Musical rehearsals when they kick into high gear after Spring Break. STAGE asks families to contribute $10-$40 to a snack fund to keep basics on hand, and we rely on volunteers to provide hot food a few times a week. Here’s a list of Snack Suggestions.

Box Office: We’ll train you on the box office software to sell tickets and answer questions. 

Concessions: You can bake or purchase items for our concessions table: Brownies, cookies, Rice Krispie treats, chips, and flavored seltzers are always popular! We also need folks to come before the show to get the concessions table ready, and to staff it before the show and at intermission.

We’ll send out links to a Signup Genius for all of these jobs before each show.

Sets & Costumes. We sometimes need volunteers to help with set construction, painting, costume inventory, etc. We’ll send email and post announcements on Facebook. 

Other Ways to Help with productions:

  • Procure props for shows
  • Maintain social media / Facebook accounts
  • Order & sell T-shirts & merchandise
  • Create publicity materials & contact media
  • Sell ad space in the Playbill to local businesses and parents of seniors who want to honor their graduate 
  • Photograph or video dress rehearsals, performances, and the Thespian Awards banquet

Chaperone the Annual Field Trip

Parent and Guardians who chaperone the three-day Washington State Thespian Festival help make it a highlight for students, and we have a great time too! STAGE works to keep costs low, and provides funding as needed so all students can go. 

To be a chaperone, you must complete the Seattle Public Schools’ volunteer process. Please email info@garfieldstage.org if you have any questions!
