Get involved with the art – become a Northern Stage Volunteer!

The gift of time is a precious one. Northern Stage depends on the dedication and talent of a growing family of community volunteers to keep our theater running smoothly and to provide critical support to our artists, administrators, and production staff.

If you would like to become a volunteer, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Hannah Ferguson, at 802-296-7000 ext. 123 or hferguson@northernstage.org. We are happy to go over all the possible ways you can help Northern Stage.
