Get Involved

Why we need you...

SVP is a great way to meet new people and be a part of a 30-year-old tradition. Whether you want to be on stage or behind the scenes, there are plenty of ways to help out. Volunteers make things happen and keep SVP alive but the real reason to get involved is because it fun.

We are expanding and need talented, enthusiastic people with new ideas and energy to help us grow. As part of a creative venture, you will find opportunities to make each project different, adding your own special flair to each project.

Help return the Badger Theater to its 1920s glory! Thanks to our MANY SUPPORTERS.

House/Ushers
The goal of this team is to create the best, most comfortable and fun theater experience for our audiences. Theater maintenance, building improvement projects and ushering are handled in this group. Ushers are key ambassadors for our group and the performances.

Lights and Sound
Set lights for tech week, program computer and run computer and light board for tech week and performances, assist in light design for stage, set sound cues in computer, run sound cuses during tech week and performances, take cues from stage manager or assistant director, and watch the shows for free!

Assist directors and producers with specific production needs and planning, research hair and makeup trends for different eras as relates to shows, assist actors with styling hair and makeup applications, and you may need to help with last-minute costume, makeup, and hair fixes (i.e. you should work well with safety pins!).

musicMusic
If you are musically inclined, you may be interested in playing an instrument for a show, coaching vocalists, playing piano for rehearsals, or acting as music director for a show.

Poster/Artwork/Brochures/Program
Seeking artists, creative minds, and writers for designing and organizing printed materials. Program requires soliciting advertisers and collecting payment from them. Poster requires design/artistic skills and finding people to help distribute the posters around town and the Madison area. We also need people to help design membership and fundraising brochures.

Props
Are you organized? Help us find and maintain props for shows, determine the usefulness of past props (are they worth keeping?) and maybe even stick around to help backstage during performances.

Publicity
Help us get the word out! Contact radio stations, TV stations, newspapers, and area businesses with show information. Maybe work with Website Committee with links. Maintain the SVP page on www.madstage.com, and post audition and show dates in various media venues.

A job for a patient, organized person with a "can do" attitude! Assist cast and director during rehearsals and shows, read lines for missing actors, feed lines to forgetful actors, soothe the egos of certain actors, and be "right-hand" for director. May have some duties supervising other behind-the-scenes volunteers. Call cues for lights and sound during performances.

We need able-bodied carpenters, plumbers, electricians, and handy people to work backstage, design and construct special building and maintenance projects year round.
