Ways to Volunteer


The TCR Production Studio is located at 407 9th Ave SE and is always buzzing with activity. Our skilled technical staff supervises a professional build crew, but volunteers are always welcome to assist with building and painting TCR’s elaborate sets and props. Join the TCR Technical Theatre Facebook page HERE for opportunites to participate behind the scenes!


Work the fly lines, move scenery, pull curtains, operate special effects, and more! There is just as much action backstage as there is in front of the curtain during a big show. Contact for more information.


Whether you are a beginner or highly-skilled, we can find a costume project that’s perfectly suited for you. Building and maintaining costume pieces uses both sewing and non-sewing skills. Or you can work backstage on the costume crew to assist with costume changes and lots of other things!  Contact for more information.


Actors, singers, dancers…there are plenty of performance opportunities for all!  With a variety of comedies, musicals, and dramas, performers of all ages and levels of experience are welcome to perform on stage at TCR. Open auditions are held throughout the year, usually about four months prior to each production. Scripts may be checked out at the box office and specific audition information is anounced on our Facebook page and news page. More questions about performing?  E-mail


Our largest single group of active volunteers (more than 250!) are TCR ushers. They take tickets, hand out programs, and/or assist our patrons to their seats.  It’s a great way to see a show at no cost! TCR uses SignUpGenius® to coordinate ushering opportunities. TAP HERE and enter in the search bar to sign up for ushering a show. Call the box office at 319-366-8591 or email for more information.


TCR holds some fantastic fundraising events througout the year. Serve on a planning committee or volunteer at an event. For more information, contact


Camps and classes are a cornerstone of TCR’s work in the community. If you are people-oriented and interested in assisting TCR’s education department, contact for available opportunities.

* – Performers and run crew volunteers aged 16+ are eligible for per performance honoraria payment.
