Volunteer

Quincy Community Theatre is able to offer and perpetuate quality theatre entertainment and education BECAUSE of the participation of our volunteers. QCT offers numerous opportunities to volunteer time and talent to our efforts, both on stage and off, during a performance, in promotion of a production, and once the show has ended.

Volunteer Areas

ACTING – on stage
COSTUMES – alterations, construction, crafting, dressing room set up, laundry, organization

STUDENT THEATRE – on stage, classroom assistants

tracking hours

Volunteers may track hours via a paper punch card for redemption of benefits when working in the Costume and Scenic Shops and for Support related opportunities such as audition table, poster distribution, and front office projects during regular business hours. You are not required to use a punch card, but we do ask that you please log your volunteer hours in the online volunteer portal regardless of whether you use a punch card for tickets or tuition.
