Call for Volunteers

Ajax Community Theatre is looking for volunteer Producers for our 2017/18 season (“Holmes for the Holiday”, “12 Angry Men”, and “Calendar Girls”).

Producers are responsible for co-ordinating production staff; maintaining communication between everyone involved in a production; ensuring that the Director has all that he/she needs to achieve their artistic vision of the show; ensuring that the Stage Manager has all that he/she needs to successfully and safely execute the show; ensuring the production is adhering to previously agreed-upon budgets; and, most important, helping ensure that everyone volunteering their time has a fun and rewarding experience.

In addition ACT is looking for volunteers to staff key positions – for the entirety of our 2017-2018 season – to assist us in completing our goal of presenting quality live theatre.

Costumes and Props Inventory Co-Ordinator:

The primary goal of this role is to maintain the inventory of props and costumes in our storage unit and thus be able to provide in-flight shows with information as to what we have in storage and what would need to be acquired.

Set Construction:

This role is the prime on set construction activities for all in-flight shows, including co-ordinating construction activities, managing our inventory of construction materials, and over-seeing the final build and ultimate removal of our sets.


We are looking for someone to develop our overall Publicity Strategy and to coordinate the posting of notices, distribution of flyers, and creating/posting to social media.

If you are interested in filling any of these roles, or wish additional information, please e-mail us at
