Volunteer Info:If you have been to one of our previous productions, you can see there have been lots of changes to the facility. Thanks to volunteers who support theater with their time, labor and money, Scotts Valley Performing Arts is well on it's way to first class performances.

Volunteers and dedication to theatre arts are what SVPA is all about. Many of the actors, young and old, and parents of our young actors participated in the theater renovation project. They also build the sets, make or find the costumes, sell the tickets, find the advertisers and make the program. We are a participatory theatre company in the true sense of the word. It takes many hands to get the job done, and we are proud to have the opportunity to work with every one.

If you are interested in theatre or just thought it might be fun to learn what it is all about, SVPA has opportunities for you both on stage and off. If you know how to sew, use a screw gun, build a web page, wrangle kids, or dial a telephone, now is your opportunity to make something wonderful happen.
