Community Theatre is an all-volunteer non-profit live theater that
has always depended upon its volunteers; your services are welcomed
- and needed! Feel free to
stop by the theater box office to fill out a BCT Volunteer
Information Sheet, or view and print out the sheet linked at the bottom of this page.
You can mail the completed form to the theatre at the address at the
bottom of this page, email a scan of completed form to our Volunteer
firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you
volunteer you can become a BCT Member! BCT is always looking for new
members. Membership cost is only $15 a year, and it entitles you to
one complimentary ticket to each show (must be used opening weekend)
and the right to vote in general elections after 12 hours of
volunteer service. It is important to the
Board of BCT that we know what our volunteers think. The only thing
we ask of you is a few hours a year to give to the betterment of
Bremerton Community Theatre. The amount of time we request be spent
volunteering at the theater to earn your comp tickets is minimal. If you can
spare some time to serve the theatre, here are some of the jobs that
need filling. We'd love to have you join us, and if there is
something you want to do that is not listed, contact our Volunteer
You will be part of a crew serving the refreshments to the audience
during intermission, assisting in collecting tickets, handing out
programs, helping the House Manager, and performing other activities
when necessary. You may volunteer for a single performance, or a
series of dates (we frequently have groups who take certain nights
on a regular basis). The job entails setting up coffee, cookies,
juice, tea, etc. and cleanup when the intermission is over. The
theatre maintains a small kitchen.
This is the person who is in charge of the "front of the house"
during the performance of any play. Your job is to look after the
needs of our patrons, and see that things go smoothly in the
audience area. The job entails getting to the theatre approximately
90 minutes before the show starts, and closing up the theatre
afterwards. Duties are for a single night, weekends, or on an
availability basis--it sometimes takes 12 house managers to serve
the performances during the run of one play.
