Ever wonder how you can get involved in Entertainment, Inc!? There are numerous and exciting ways! You could…
ACT ON STAGE!
There are many large and small parts available! Simply check the Auditions Page for audition dates or call 701-577-3179.
Much work is required behind the scenes of a production to make it a success. Help with costume changes, set changes, props, etc. Be a part of it all!
Constructing sets requires many skills such as skills in carpentry and painting. If you enjoy creating things on a grand scale, you should definitely get involved in set construction!
RUN SOUND AND/OR LIGHTS!
Most productions require sound effects and special lighting arrangements. Sound and lights help create a setting. This can be a challenging, yet very enjoyable aspect to the theatre!
Some productions require historically accurate costumes. Others may require costumes which are much more fantastic. Each production provides a new and exciting challenge to anyone in charge of creating costumes.
DO STAGE MAKE-UP!
Like costuming, make-up can be a very creative yet challenging aspect to a production. Some actors who are portraying ordinary people may only require minimal make-up for their part whereas others who may be playing a monster may require something far more elaborate. If you think it would be fun to take an actor in their twenties and age them 60 years then this may be right up your alley!
BECOME A BOARD MEMBER
Board members run the organization, make the big decisions, and are leaders on committees. Each Board member has a 3 year term and are nominated by other members, community, Board members, and even a self nomination. To learn more, speak with current Board members and attend the annual meetings.
THERE ARE MANY OTHER WAYS TO GET INVOLVED!
If there is nothing from the above list that interests you, don’t give up just yet! They need help with everything from ticket sales to ushering!
