Volunteer with Us
For those who have been involved with a production before, you know how many moving parts there are. If you are not comfortable with stepping foot onstage and feeling the warm, exhilarating glow from the stage lights on your face but you want to still be apart of a production, then you may still be in luck! We are ALWAYS in need of those who know how to swing a hammer to assist us in building our extraordinary sets! Prone to accidents and prefer not to hold a hammer? NOT AN ISSUE! We would never deny someone who wanted to help paint sets! Never been one to color inside the lines? THAT’S OKAY! Our tech booth is always looking for new recruits to work our light and sound board! Not a tech savvy person? ME NEITHER! Our FABULOUS costume designers are ALWAYS looking for help putting together the most elegant of costumes for our actors! Not a needle and thread type of person? IT’S UNDERSTANDABLE! Our back stage crew is always in need of a few extra hands!
From the beginning, we’ve been successful in engaging our community’s young people in theater; it is a part of our “mission” that we find very rewarding. In fact, the young people who get their start on our stage often go on to represent our community quite well. In recent years, at least two U.I.L. “Best Actors,” one “Best Actress,” nearly a dozen All-District and All-Region Cast members, members of a state One Act Play team and several major theatre college scholarship winners all got their start or significant experience on our stage.
We are extremely proud of these young men and women!
To assist nascent acting careers, Milam Community Theater awards scholarships annually to selected students who have devoted their time to our mission by performing with MCT at least twice and, have been involved in their high school’s one act play program. Since the program was started, over $12,000 in scholarships have been awarded to 28 different recipients.
