Support

Everyone can help!

The best community theater is exactly that: a community. Our dedicated volunteers are the backbone of Theatre Knoxville. And we have FUN!
Come spend time with other folks who share your passion for making great theater possible.

There are many ways you can help support Theatre Knoxville!

Promotion

Help get the word out about Theatre Knoxville!

  • Distribute posters
  • Contact traditional media
  • Promote shows on social media
Box Office

Help out on show nights by taking tickets, selling concessions, and welcoming patrons to the theater.

Photography

Have a knack for capturing great shots (and want to make a little money)? We need photographs of the cast and set for each show that we can use for promotional materials, event calendars, and more.

You will be taking photographs during one of the dress rehearsals.

Fundraising

Ticket sales provide only a very small portion of the money necessary to keep us afloat. Help keep the lights on by selling program ads, networking with sponsors and donors, and winning grants.

Sets, Costumes, and Props

If you’re handy with your hands, then put them to good use! Join a work crew to strike the set when a show ends, and/or build the set for the next show in the lineup. Help our talented costume designers create (or find) just the right outfits for a colorful cast of characters. Visit estate sales and contact prop donors to locate that special item or piece of furniture that will help to make a show come alive on stage.

Build Days

Handy with the hammer or paint brush? We can use help building the sets for our shows!

Get Involved

Theatre Knoxville exists because people (like you) get involved and contribute to the local theatre community!
