Palm Beach Atlantic University Children’s Theatre
Training, Encouraging, and Mentoring the next generation of theatre artists.
PBA Children’s Theatre offers volunteer positions for high school students under the
age of 18. Student volunteers are able to earn volunteer hours towards Florida Bright
Futures. Volunteer positions are divided into two categories, Education and Production/Artistic.
EDUCATION Student volunteers assist teaching artists in class, supervise lunch hour, and help with general classroom management. Volunteers are placed in Summerstage production based on their experience and skill set. All education assistants are required to work scheduled rehearsals and attend all tech rehearsals and performance. Education assistants may be part of our run crew and assist with strike.
PRODUCTION/ARTISTIC Student volunteers will be paired with a mentor in their chosen area (props, sound, lights, etc.) and work closely with that person during our summer production class as production assistants. All production assistants are required to work during scheduled rehearsals and attend all tech rehearsals and performance. Production assistants serve as our run crew and assist with strike.
We have a limited amount of volunteer positions. All students interested must apply and interview for the position. PBA Children’s Theatre selection committee will review applicants and notify student volunteers if they have been selected to participate.
HOW DO I APPLY?
Complete a student volunteer application and submit prior to the deadline date of July 8, 2019 for the fall session and November 15, 2019 for the spring session. Upon receipt, an email will be sent confirming your interview date and time.
WHEN WILL I KNOW I’VE BEEN SELECTED?
