While preserving and honoring its rich African-American history, the Morton Theatre is a community-based performing arts venue committed to providing and cultivating diverse programming that will enrich, educate and inspire current and future generations.
The Morton Theatre Troupers is a support and service organization for the Morton Theatre. A sincere desire to be involved in a major arts organization is all you need to become a trouper. No experience is necessary! You will be asked to volunteer as little as two hours a month or as much time as you would like. There is no financial commitment involved – just your time, energy and enthusiasm.
The Morton Theatre of the Leisure Services Department, Arts and Nature Programs Division, and as a service of local government is a sophisticated historic performance venue which is committed to showcasing rich, dynamic and diverse entertainment and cultural events.
The Morton Theatre Troupers program embraces many volunteers, just like you, who work together to provide a variety of high quality entertainment to the community. Whether you are involved in a production or provide administrative support, as a volunteer you become an integral part of the Morton Theatre. There are many volunteer opportunities available, depending on your interest and the amount of time you want to share.
Restored and adapted as a performing arts space, the Morton now caters to local community and touring groups hosting live musical concerts, musicals, dramas, church services, weddings, dance concerts, receptions, poetry readings, pageants, award shows, and more.
