Currently in great need of hospitality volunteers. 


We are excited to be in our first season in our new home at 2120 Broadway St. in Redwood City! However, with our new set-up, it is more important than ever to have Hospitality Volunteers.  A Hospitality Volunteer (1 or 2 per show) is in charge of setting up concessions and the lobby an hour before each show, selling concessions before and during intermission of the show, and closing up concessions and the lobby after the show. All Volunteers are required to arrive an hour before the show starts and have all volunteer duties completed before leaving. If you have never volunteered for Dragon Theatre before there is a short training session you are required to attend before volunteering. Hospitality Volunteers will have a seat reserved for the night they volunteer so they can enjoy the show for free!  Please send interest to



Other positions generally available: 


Administrative: If you enjoy working on the computer, we have many projects involving data entry, compiling data, research, grant writing, and much, much more. This is a great way to help Dragon from the comfort of your own home.


Production: We are always working on organizing and inventory of our props and costume storage. We also love help with finding props or costumes for each of our shows. This is a great way to be resourceful & directly influence our productions’ designs. Want the inside look at how auditions go? We always need auditions assistants. We also need House Managers for every performance to take tickets and sell concessions - it's a great way to meet people and see the shows for free!


Publicity: We always need people to pound the streets to distribute postcards and hang fliers.


Fundraising: We have an annual fundraising event in the summer and we always need help securing donations for the auction, setting up and running the event, and so on.


If you'd like to volunteer to help out at Dragon, please email us at and we'll see how you can help!
