Lamp-Lite Theatre relies entirely on volunteers for everything we do. If you are a theater lover, there are a number of ways you can volunteer to help us continue to bring live theater to audiences throughout East Texas and Louisiana, including acting on-stage, running lights, building and painting sets, making music, dancing, working the box office, ushering, putting together publications, mail-outs, grant applications, benefits . . . ”It’s all part of the show at Lamp-Lite,” says Lamp-Lite Director, Sarah McMullan.
The three main areas for volunteer opportunities are FRONT-OF-HOUSE, BACKSTAGE, and PERFORMERS.
It is the “out front” volunteers that our patrons and customers have the most frequent or direct contact with. Volunteers help us meet our objective of making every patron’s theater-going experience a pleasant and enjoyable one. The work is not difficult, but it does require an interest in assisting Lamp-Lite patrons.
"Front-of-House" Volunteers serve in three main areas as follows:
All volunteers will receive a COMPLIMENTARY TICKET to that day’s performance and, once the lights go down, they may take a seat in the auditorium and enjoy the play.
After the play, volunteers will help tidy up the theater and empty the waste baskets into the dumpster outside.
If you would like to become a FRONT-OF-THE-HOUSE volunteer, please contact the HOUSE MANAGER at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A crucial part of a live performance happens behind the scenes, both before a production is mounted and during its run.
The four-to-six week period between plays is an extremely busy one for our crew of volunteers. Just as soon as one of our plays is completed, work begins on set construction for the next play. Scenery must be built and painted, props built or acquired, costumes created, etc.

SOUND & LIGHTING
Stage lighting and sound, including music, are absolutely critical elements to any stage performance. As a non-profit community theatre, all of our sound and lighting personnel are unpaid volunteers who draw satisfaction from their love of theatre.
Each performance requires two people in the sound and light booth. Volunteers should be available for every performance of the two-week run of that particular play, in addition to several rehearsals.
Anyone interested in working with sound & lighting for our Lamp-Lite performances should contact:
The Lamp-Lite Players are an acting troupe from which performers for our plays are selected. As a result, we do not schedule formal auditions more often than about once a year, in addition to the children's auditions for our annual summer musicals.
That said, we are always eager to find new performers — adults of all ages, teens, singers, actors — to enhance and expand our coterie of performers.
