Volunteer at SNL


Volunteer at Sample Night Live!

Each month, Sample Night Live requires a host of fun and fabulous folks to keep the Sample Night Live machine well-oiled and running smoothly. Every volunteer has an opportunity to schmooze and network with Sample Night Live artists, whether backstage during the show or afterwards at the fantastic after party!

Those interested in technical fields within theater can also gain valuable, hands-on experience working in a professional environment, staffed by fully-qualified theatre professionals.

To volunteer, email producer@samplenightlive.com.
