Volunteer Information for Scary U

If you are on this page we hope you are going to volunteer to help us with Scary U.
Thank You!

For those of you who are already volunteers we appreciate your efforts and hope this page will help answer some of your questions.

Our volunteer meetings are scheduled on the calendar page.

Please note that we do not have volunteer positions available for people who just want to help during performances. The volunteer committment must begin at the start of the project that you volunteer for.

Check back to this page often since we'll be posting updates to the schedules and other volunteer information.
