Volunteers are an essential component of each STAR Repertory Theatre production!!

 

A typical STAR Rep show includes a total of 2,500 + hours of volunteer time divided among the STAR's Board of Talent, STAR Rep's Parent Advisory Committee, crew, and families of all the cast members. It's a fun experience, and very rewarding!  So join in the FUN today!
