FRONT OF HOUSE & BOX OFFICE
As one of the nation’s largest community-based theatres, the Volunteer is the heart and soul of what we do. More than 300 Volunteers are involved in producing a season of shows and events at Theatre Baton Rouge. On stage, backstage, out front or behind the scenes, there are dozens of ways to become involved each year. No matter your age, experience or schedule, there is an opportunity perfect for you. Click on the above tabs to see some of the ways to enjoy the TBR Volunteer Experience...
Work the fly-lines, move scenery, pull curtains, operate special effects -- there can be as much 'action' backstage as there is out front during a big show. Our Tech Director would love to sign you up. No experience needed!
Prior to each show, the TBR Scene Shop is filled with activity. Our skilled technical staff works with volunteers to build and paint our elaborate sets and props. Carpentry and painting skills a plus, but not always necessary.
The Production Stage Manager (PSM) heads up the tech crews, calls cues, in short -- 'manages' the run of the show.
Assistant Stage Managers (ASM) work with the PSM during rehearsals with administrative projects and during performances to ensure a smooth production. They are the “eyes and ears” of the PSM backstage. This is a great way to learn the ropes!
During the performances the light board operator runs the light cues on our computer light board and the crew works follow spots. The sound board operator runs a multi-channel mixing board to control music, sound effects and microphones.
For more information on any of these positions, contact the Theatre Baton Rouge Box Office at (225) 924-6496
Whether you are a beginner or highly skilled, we can find a costume project that's perfectly suited for you. Building and maintaining costume pieces uses both sewing and non-sewing skills. Perhaps you can work backstage on the costume run crew to assist actors with costume changes, or help us pull costumes and build new ones. If you'd like to be part of the fun, contact the TBR Box Office at (225) 924-6496 for more information. No experience needed!
If you like hunting for unusual items like a London newspaper or a Victorian chair this may be perfect for you. The props master and crew are responsible for locating or making all those items used by the actors on stage. Call the Box Office at (225) 924-6496, and let the hunt begin! No experience needed!
