On the THIRD SATURDAY of each month from 9am – 1pm, we invite volunteers to come visit in the Ralph North Studio Rehearsal Hall (Riverside Dr. end of the building) for coffee and community. We want to get to know our volunteers and give our volunteers space, time, and coffee to connect with us and one another (water will be served as well).
There will always be a Honey-Do list up for small/moderate jobs around the theatre that need doing, so that volunteers can help out while they are there.
