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 email our General Manager Amanda Sheehan at asheehan@northernstage.org, or call us at 802-296-7000 ext. 125. We are happy to go over all the possible ways you can help Northern Stage.

The Backstagers

Backstagers are an integral part of the theater and provide vital assistance with a wide range of tasks, from sewing on buttons to organizing tech dinners for each cast. There’s no better way to get to know the artists of Northern Stage!
