Ways to help

Box Office

Our Box Office is manned by our apprentices as well as a select group of volunteers. They are the first point of contact our patrons experience at the theatre and are trained to get patrons the best seats available. We are looking for volunteers with a willingness to help our patrons navigate our ticketing system.

Ushering is the most straight forward and least time consuming way to volunteer at Tipping Point Theatre. You’re required to show up 1 hour before a performance in the typical usher uniform; black bottoms with a white top. The House Manager will give you a run down of what to expect for that performance. You will help patrons to their seats and, as long as we are not sold out, you will stay and enjoy the show for free! Interested in joining our ushering ranks?

Set Build

Set Build means helping us by getting your hands, and sometimes your clothes, dirty! Comfortable with a power tool? Interested in contributing to the set of a professional theatre? Set build is just for you! We spend 4 weeks in build for each production and would love to have you join us make the set come to life! Weekday availability and experience with power tools are beneficial.
