Family Volunteer Requirements
Dare to Dream Theatre values the support of the families and friends of staff, board members, cast, and community.
Since we are dependent on community support and talents of volunteers, the family of each cast member is required to complete at least 10 volunteer tasks during the course of rehearsals and performances. When volunteer involvement is not possible for a family, there is a "buy out" option available.
