As an all-volunteer community theater group, Theatre 7 welcomes anyone interested in becoming involved, with many opportunities available both on and off stage. Members not only work on shows — producing, directing, acting, set design and construction, costuming, props, marketing and promotion, etc — but also focus on the business aspects of running a non-profit organization as well as community support and outreach.
Our members are an incredibly diverse mix of folk, from novices looking to learn more about this art form to entertainment professionals moonlighting for nothing more than the fun of it. Our members have worked on or appeared in movies, television programs and commercials, in Broadway productions…. they’ve also been featured in high school musicals and church programs. No matter where we come from or what we’ve done, we come together with the shared desire to “Put On a Show” for our home town!
