Volunteer

Fun & exciting opportunity awaits those interested in donating their time and talent to the Tibbits. Our volunteers range from 8 to 98. They include students, retired persons, stay-at-home parents, and people employed in occupations as diverse as the volunteers themselves. There are many fields of interest that require a small army of volunteers to help keep the Tibbits running efficiently. This dedicated group is organized and managed through the Tibbits Boosters Organization.

Some volunteers and staff gather in the theatre lobby prior to the 38th Annual Auction.

PROSPECTIVE VOLUNTEERS

Learn About The Tibbits Boosters

Have you ever thought about volunteering your time or talents at Tibbits? Volunteers are our most valuable asset. Tibbits Boosters is an organization of Tibbits supporters who have volunteered more than 5 hours and are at least 18 years old. Volunteers are needed in numerous areas – ushers, office, auction, special events, art, behind the scenes, and youth programs – to name a few. You can volunteer as often as you like and in as many areas as you like. The choice is yours.

Over 250 people donated their time and talents to the theatre last year.
The Booster Organization recently completed strategic planning. Its mission: to provide and coordinate volunteer support for Tibbits. Its reorganization: to focus on recruiting, retaining and recognizing. The Booster leadership has chosen to move to a streamlined, committee structure instead of a governing board. The committees directly reflect the primary needs of the Tibbits Opera Foundation.

CURRENT VOLUNTEERS / BOOSTERS

If membership is the foundation of the theatre, then the Boosters are its heart. Over 250 people donated their time and talents to the theatre last year, and we cannot thank you enough! As noted in the October newsletter, the Boosters recently completed strategic planning. Its mission: to provide and coordinate volunteer support for Tibbits. Its reorganization: to focus on recruiting, retaining and recognizing. The Booster leadership has chosen to move to a streamlined, committee structure instead of a governing board, but most of the volunteers won’t notice a difference. The committees directly reflect the primary needs of the Tibbits Opera Foundation.
