About Volunteering and how it helps TBTL

What Volunteering Involves

Theatre by the Lake's volunteers range in age from 16 to 86. Each year they work more than 4,000 shifts and contribute 15,000 hours of their time.

Shifts begin an hour before a performance begins and last for up to four hours, finishing around ten minutes after a performance ends. Volunteering at TBTL is very flexible, based upon when the volunteer is available, but we ask that volunteers aim to be available for a minimum of 12 shifts a year; many do more.
Volunteering provides an excellent opportunity to meet lots of likeminded people, both customers and volunteers, who all share an interest in theatre. You will be sure to make many new friends as you share shifts with new colleagues.
