Volunteer

New Perspectives relies on the help of volunteers every season for the success of our productions! The bulk of our season’s activities fall from September to June. We are looking for people who want to get involved and have particular areas of expertise (press and marketing, community outreach, fundraising, event planning), and a general enthusiasm for theatre. We are always looking for new board members to help guide the organization to our 30th anniversary year. If you are interested in volunteering please contact us for more information. Thank you!
