KWLT is an all-volunteer organization, and we’re always looking for new people with new ideas.
If you’re interested in helping out with KWLT in some capacity — as an officer of the theatre with defined areas of responsibility, as a member of a production team, as a part of our front-of-house staff, or just as an occasional helper to do what needs doing — we’d love to hear from you. Email email@example.com and let us know how you’d like to contribute to our community, or see below for current opportunities & other ways to connect with us.
Audition wranglers for Ordinary Days
Auditions for the final show of the 2022–23 season are coming up, and we’re looking for a few people to help as wranglers. This involves greeting actors as they arrive, getting their information (or checking that we’ve already got it), and generally managing traffic.
Auditions will be held at the flex space at 44 Gaukel St. downtown on March 27, 28, and 29. You’ll be expected to be present from 6:45 pm until about 10. If you’re available to help out on any of those evenings, please email the team to volunteer!
General Manager Committee
At our last AGM, the board was instructed to research the necessary steps to create a paid General Manager position, and report back to the membership with a recommendation by the 2023 Annual General Meeting. We are seeking volunteers to join our Treasurer, Rami, in this endeavour – if you have ever been a building manager for us, have other experience in facilities management, or keenly interested in the results of this work, please reach out to Rami at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more!
Bar service for KWLT and rental events
KWLT is licensed for the sale and service of alcohol; we sell drinks at our own shows as well as for some rental events like stand-up comedy shows and concerts. If you’re SmartServe certified and would like the opportunity to run our concessions for occasional events, please contact Matt the Bar Manager and let him know he can add you to his list. (If you’re not SmartServe but would like to be — or if your SmartServe certification is expiring soon — we might be able to help with that; email Matt to ask how.)
Sign up for our tech list
Are you interested in volunteer opportunities in technical theatre? When we need people to help out with set building, lights hanging, mixing live sound, or other technical tasks we’ll send out calls to the KWLT tech list. If you’d like to receive those calls, sign up for the list here.
Join our committees
This year the Board of Directors has established several committees to handle both strategic projects and operational tasks on an ongoing basis. These committees are open to all KWLT members. See the current lineup here. If you’re interested in joining one (or more) of these working groups, the easiest way to connect is to join the KWLT Slack (see below) and connecting with the relevant channel.
Join the KWLT Slack
Slack is a tool for collaboration and discussion, and it’s how our various committees are coordinating themselves. We encourage all of our volunteers to join the Slack: follow this invite link to get started. (If that link has expired, please let us know so that we can replace it.)
