Hear from Our Volunteers
WHAT ARE THE GREATEST REWARDS OF VOLUNTEERING?
The memories of seeing excited and vibrant youth after experiencing educational shows in Starr Theater. -Catherine
I enjoy working with the public, love working concessions and meeting new people. I love hearing someone say this is their first time here. And as a volunteer I have enjoyed our potluck gatherings - getting to know each other a little better and having some fun at the same time. -Kathy
Just seeing the awe and fascination on the faces of all those kids while they are at the WAC is all the "theater magic" I need. -Morgan
WHY DO YOU VOLUNTEER AT WAC?
I really enjoy being around the performing arts. Since I'm not in a position to donate a lot of money, I can help the Walton Arts Center by volunteering my time. Also, the volunteer group and the staff members are so much fun to be around! -Morgan
The "stock" answer is to give back to my community, but it goes much deeper than that for me. It is the energy I get from the kids when we do an education show. (We can bring 1200 kids and 25-30 buses to a 9:30 show, move them out and do it all over for an 11:30 show.) It is the smiles and thank you from our patrons. It is a chance to work with a group of volunteers that is like family. -Michael
