NC Theatre Hearts Our Volunteers!

NC Theatre kicked off National Volunteer Week with the 3rd annual Volunteer Appreciation Party at Bonefish Grill at the Lassiter on Sunday, April 19.

National Volunteer Week, commemorated April 19-25, has a theme of "Celebrating People in Action." The theme captures the meaning behind this signature week – honoring the individuals who dedicate themselves to taking action and solving problems in their communities.

NC Theatre is fortunate to have three strong volunteer groups, our fabulous Board of Directors, our recently formed Emeritus Board and our dynamic Curtain Callers!

NC Theatre could not operate without the generous time commitment of our volunteers! Board members help raise money in the community and spread the word about the mission of NC Theatre. They also meet quarterly to review NC Theatre’s budget, programs and overall operations.

Curtain Callers are everywhere you look during a NC Theatre show- selling merchandise, greeting patrons at the front door and even preparing a cast dinner on the final Sunday of the show! Curtain Callers also work behind the scenes with our Education Department, granting scholarships for kids at the Conservatory and Summer Theatre Arts School.

Each year, the Curtain Callers present a Curtain Caller Volunteer of the Year Award at the Volunteer Appreciation Party. Last year’s winner was Annette DeVito for her tireless efforts as merchandise coordinator. The 2009 winner is Donna Walston who has coordinated the delicious cast dinner for years! Congrats and THANK YOU to all of our volunteers.
