Work Days
A work day is time set aside (usually on a Saturday) for volunteers to come to the theatre and help with various projects needed to make a production at Wichita Community Theatre. Types of projects include: set building, finding and designing props and costumes, assisting with setting and hanging lights, painting, etc.  Work day announcements typically come the Wednesday before the Saturday we plan to work, unless we are able to schedule them in advance.
Volunteers that participate in a work day get one free tickets to see the upcoming production!
