Volunteers with nametags at a theater DOWNTOWN GLENS FALLS THEATER

A Fun Group

Who are those smiling faces greeting you at the Charles R. Wood Theater? They are members of the theater’s loyal volunteer staff, 100 strong and growing!  Our volunteers usher at performances, work in the box office, sell concessions, provide administrative support, assist with special events… and have fun!

WHO ARE THE WOOD VOLUNTEERS?

Our group draws individuals of all ages and backgrounds, from towns all over Warren, Washington and Saratoga counties. Among our Wood volunteers are married couples, siblings, parents, grandparents, great grandparents, students, retirees, longtime supporters of theatre, actors, actresses, directors, musicians… you name it!

When you attend a Wood event, the volunteer who greets you might be your neighbor, a co-worker, a former teacher, your Zumba buddy, a cast member from a recent show you saw or a voice you recognize from the radio. Above all, our Wood volunteers all share a common desire to make each and every guest feel welcome and comfortable. All levels of time commitment are valued and we’d love to have you join us!
