Volunteer for the Festival

It's Free Because of Me!

The Festival needs your help, requiring 10-14 volunteers each night to assist the front of house duties before the production and during intermission. To sign up to help the Festival or for more information, please email Elizabeth Cooper at or call 816-531-7728.


Corporate and Company Group Volunteers

Groups are encouraged to volunteer one or more nights for the Festival!  Volunteering as a group is a great team building activity and being outdoors in the park is an enjoyable evening of community service.  Groups are recognized from the stage, and are able to wear company t-shirts and/or logos while volunteering.

Group Volunteer Coordinators please call or email Elizabeth Cooper at or 816-531-7728 to discuss available dates and to reseve your night in the park!
