Volunteers are the fuel that powers Burien Little Theatre. You can help make the magic happen!If you can do anything, Burien Little Theatre can use your help.
All of the theatre's administrative tasks, plus most of the work to stage our shows, are performed by people who donate their time.From seamstresses to board members, we only succeed because of the talent and labor of volunteers.
You don't have to be trained in theater to join the Burien Little Theatre family. If you can paint the walls in your living room, sew a shirt or put up a poster, you can help. And you will be guided by experienced volunteers.
Currently, our greatest needs are people to help with administrative tasks like addressing envelopes and copying, and publicity tasks like distributing posters to various businesses and writing promotional materials. But we are always looking for new recruits in every category because the more the merrier.
Here are just a few of the volunteer opportunities we offer:
Publicity - creating and distributing ads, press releases, posters, postcards, signs and other publicity materials
for musical comedy “Young Frankenstein” at Burien Little Theatre
Little Theatre announces auditions for the musical “Young Frankenstein,”
written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan, with music and lyrics by Mel Brooks.
“Young Frankenstein” utilizes an ensemble cast of characters ranging in age
from mid-20s through mid-50s. All parts are open and available and all actors
are encouraged to audition.
Synopsis: IT'S ALIVE! A wickedly inspired re-imagining of
the Frankenstein legend based on Mel Brooks' classic 1974 comedy film
masterpiece, the story follows bright young Dr. Frankenstein (that's
Fronkensteen) as he attempts to complete his grandfather's masterwork and bring
a corpse to life. But this musical comedy hit, winner of the 2008 Outer Critics
Circle Award, is not without scary and hilarious complications. Accompanied by
a live musical combo, the show includes such memorable tunes as "The
Transylvania Mania," "He Vas My Boyfriend" and the famous
"Puttin' On The Ritz.”
