• History Theatre is able to successfully meet its mission because of the generous contributions of time and energy from community volunteers. Volunteers provide excellent service as ushers and front-of-house staff, caring and capable attention during special events, and helping hands on projects large and small. In exchange, History Theatre provides training, ticket vouchers, and a volunteer appreciation event.
