“The one who volunteers, gives twice.”

Volunteers give their precious (and priceless!) gifts of time and talent — and help build a strong community for all of us.

Lakeshore Players is a true community theatre. Our small staff depends on the many volunteers who help put together every show. For every production, volunteers fill vital roles behind the scenes, on the stage, and in the house. Listed below are just a few of the many types of volunteer opportunities at Lakeshore.
