If you’d like to volunteer backstage, here are some options:

  • Set Building – we’ll send you a schedule of times we’ll be in the theatre building sets. We’ll need people who know how to swing a hammer, paint, and set up chairs. If you can carry large objects, that is a plus!
  • Light Board Operator – this person needs to be familiar with a computerized lighting system and have some experience. The Light Board Operator needs to be available to work EVERY performance and EVERY technical rehearsal
  • Sound Board Operator – this person needs to be familiar with general sound equipment and have some experience. The Sound Board Operator needs to be available to work EVERY performance and EVERY technical rehearsal.
  • Props Runner – this person doesn’t need much experience, but does need to own black clothes and be able to see and move quickly in the dark. Strong organizational skills are a plus.

If you would like to volunteer to help us in front of house, here are a few options:

  • Usher – ushers greet the audience members as they arrive, tear tickets and hand out programs. It is also helpful if they know where the bathrooms are and if food and drink are allowed in the theatre (they are). A friendly smile is a must for this position. Note: Ushers get to see the show they “ush” for free!
  • Box Office – this person needs to be friendly and comfortable working with the public, able to count money, and use a credit card machine. Training is required for this position.
  • Friendraiser – these people should be huge fans of Mustard Seed Theatre that are willing to post reviews, send out opening notices, hang flyers, distribute postcards, and generally rave about Mustard Seed Theatre and our shows. Facebook pages, large email lists, and blogs are strongly encouraged!

Auditions for Mustard Seed Theatre shows are primarily held in April or May and are generally for all the shows in the season. Audition times for individual shows may vary based on the director’s availability. Open auditions consist of a 2-minute monologue, resume and headshot. Callbacks will be held after open auditions and are at the discretion of the director. Mustard Seed Theatre uses Special Appearance contracts when hiring members of Actors’ Equity Association. Equity and Non-equity actors may audition.

Audition announcements will be posted on this website, on the St. Louis Theatre Yahoo Group, and on the Mustard Seed Theatre Facebook page. Mustard Seed Theatre encourages actors of all races, religions, and backgrounds to audition.
