We can always use more help. Whether you’ve had years of professional theatre experience or you’ve never stepped foot inside a theatre, there’s plenty you can do to help out.
We are regularly in need of help backstage on stage crew (no experience necessary; we’ll provide it). If you sew, paint, do woodworking or graphic design, we’ve got plenty of gratifying work for you. Even if your only asset is your enthusiasm, there are plenty of posters to be distributed, people to call, and ads to be sold.
We are always looking for volunteers willing to serve performances as Ushers and House Managers. In serving our patrons with a small time commitment to NRTG, you will be welcome to view the performance you are serving FREE of charge! This is a great opportunity for friends/couples to serve together and see a great performance – all in one memorable evening.
Monetary Donations. We don’t like to sound crass, but if you feel the best way you can help out would be simply to donate some money, we’re fine with that. Running a theatre company is very expensive, especially of late, with virtually all government assistance a thing of the past.
Ticket sales make up only a part of our budget. For much of the rest, we depend upon the generosity of strangers, and of our friends like you. Niagara Regional Theatre Guild is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, so donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Material Donations. Do you have an old clawfoot table that you can’t throw out but will never use? Unused fabric with a pattern so hideous you wonder why you ever bought it? An old manual typewriter that hasn’t worked since high school? From time to time, we need specific props, furniture, or building materials that we can’t find, or that aren’t in our budget.
