ACT is a volunteer-driven theatre where everyone is welcome! If you’re enthusiastic about learning a new skill or sharing your talents with us, we’d love to have you!

Our COVID policies have been updated due to the Delta variant. All volunteers are required to be vaccinated or have a valid exemption. All volunteers will be required to wear a mask at all times. Please read our full COVID policy here.

Usher Training Sessions
Would you like to be a volunteer usher for our 2021-22 Mainstage season? Ushers help out before and after the show, and during intermission – and get to see the show for free! You only need to attend one and you do not need to sign up in advance. Remember to wear a mask when you get to the theatre!

  • Thursday, September 30 at 6:15-7:00 pm

We hold Volunteer Orientation sessions for all other volunteer positions throughout the year. Sessions usually last about one hour. At this time, we do not have any upcoming sessions scheduled. To be updated about future volunteer opportunities, please subscribe to our bi-weekly e-newsletter!

Note: Asheville Community Theatre policy prohibits participation by anyone on any sex offender or sexual abuse registry to any activity sponsored by Asheville Community Theatre. The only exception is being a member of an audience of an event sponsored by ACT.


Our internship program is currently paused. In the past, we have been able to tailor internships based on individual requirements. If you’re interested in connecting with Asheville Community Theatre about a possible internship, please email Amanda Klinikowski, our Education Director.


No open positions at this time.



Artistic Team Positions:

We are in the process of creating a portal for anyone interested in an artistic position (director, music director, choreographer, designer) for a future Mainstage or Tanglewood Youth Production Class show. Until then, please email your resume to Production Manager Jill Summers. We look to hire people within the WNC region, and do not provide stipends for travel or lodging. We are accepting resumes on a rolling basis to include in our files, and will contact you should a position become available.

Productions in our 35below season are proposed by and produced by individuals from the WNC region. We are currently not accepting applications for 35below, as we are unsure when we will be able to reopen that space due to COVID-19. Please check the 35below page on our website for more information.
