Apply to Volunteer

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people and have fun! All volunteers receive a t-shirt and can watch the show for free.

Fill out an application to volunteer. The volunteer coordinator will contact you via email after receiving your application.

Each volunteer, regardless of age, must submit an application. That means that parent/child teams and groups need to fill out a separate application for everyone in their party.

Take a look at the job descriptions below to find what jobs are good for you!

  • Please arrive ½ hour earlier than your start time to check in with the Community Engagement Coordinator at the front gate, get your t-shirt, secure your seats in the theatre, and get trained by your station leader.
  • There will be a volunteer shuttle pick up at Tam High School at 9 am. You will arrive on the mountain by 9:45-10 AM. If you have a start time earlier than the shuttle arrives, please plan accordingly. There’s parking available before 9 AM.
  • Bring a lunch and a water bottle (or money to purchase food and drink). Wear layers and be prepared with outdoor appropriate clothing and shoes.

Duration of each volunteer post will vary from five to eight hours.
