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.
