Become a Volunteer

Volunteers are at the core of the Strand-Capitol Performing Arts Center’s operation and a vital component to the overall success of the facility. Each and every Strand-Capitol volunteer offers their own individual contribution to the center whether they are assisting patrons to their seats, serving refreshments, folding letters, making copies or offering a “Welcome” and a smile. But at the heart of every Strand-Capitol volunteer is one common trait: a passion for the arts in the community.

Why volunteer?

  • Explore new interests
