Volunteer to help Albany Civic Theater!


Volunteers are a vital part of our theater, and duties are not limited to acting. We can utilize any special talent that you have, no matter if you would like to usher, help build sets, assist in making costumes or even help us meet and greet patrons to our theater. We can use volunteers to help in any and all areas of our theater. It’s a wonderful way to be a part of the ACT family, and best of all, every time you volunteer, you get to see a performance FOR FREE!
