First and foremost, I would like to thank you in advance for volunteering your time and energy to be a part of our amazing theatre community. The Lawrence Arts Center welcomes and encourages parent/guardian volunteers as an important component of our process. We believe that parents enhance the experiences for young actors. Your involvement helps us to maintain a safe, secure, and nurturing environment for all of our performers, technicians, patrons, and staff.

We will need help with costume construction, backstage during tech rehearsals and performances, as well as front of house help during performances in the form of ushers and concession support.


Our process has changed a little: All adults working within the arts center, age 18 years of age and older are required to pass criminal background checks to work in the arts center, including volunteer roles.  This information is private and will be kept on file with our Human Resources Department.


Step 1: Please register HERE you will be entered into the system.

Step 2: You will receive an email from our Volunteer Coordinator, Lisa, with next steps, including filling out a Volunteer Background Check Form.

Step 3: Your background check will take 24-48 hours to process. Once processed, you will receive an email informing you that you are clear and in our “Active” volunteer pool.

Step 4: Once active, you will be will receive an email with volunteer opportunities and other information.
