Do you have a passion for the theatre? Are you interested in pursuing a career in education? At Carousel Players summer theatre school, we offer a volunteer position that combines both.

Carousel Players offers Summer Theatre School for children aged 5 to 14 in July and August. Campers experience many aspects of the arts at one of our 6 different day camps. Theatre classes are led by professional artist-educators and take place at The Robby, 85 Church Street, St. Catharines.

Carousel Players invites high school students to apply for one or more volunteer positions at our five camps. Camps run one or two weeks and volunteers can work with three age groups: 5-7 yr olds, 8-10 yr olds, and 11-14 yr olds.

All positions are Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm, except for the holiday on August 5. Volunteer hours with Carousel Players, a non-profit charity, can be applied towards graduation requirements.

Volunteer Responsibilities:

  • Greet students as they arrive at camp each morning
  • Participate in all camp activities under guidance of professional artists
  • Assist coordinator and workshop leader in supervision of students
  • Assist with photocopy needs, collection of props/costumes/sound effect and other technical requirements for each camp.
