Getting started is easy, just fill out the Volunteer Application and we will notify you of the next volunteer orientation. These meetings generally last a little more than one hour and are required before participation can begin. As a not-for-profit organization, volunteers are essential to the success of the Mount Baker Theatre. We are always looking for eager members of the community who have an interest in the arts and who want to become a part of the Mount Baker Theatre volunteer STARS program.
For more information about becoming a Mount Baker Theatre volunteer contact Volunteer Coordinator, Cindi Pree by email or at (360) 733-5793 x309.
