Volunteer Your Magik

Calling all Teachers, Thespians, Students, and Builders! If you have a passion for education and the performing arts, then volunteer at The Magik Theatre. There are many ways for you to use your “magikal” skills that will make a difference in the lives of 100,000 children and their families in San Antonio and South Texas.

Volunteer Ushers: This is the perfect position for those with people skills and excellent customer service. This is a vital position since you will serve as the face of The Magik Theatre for many of our patrons. You’ll contribute by passing out programs, answering questions, and getting families to the right seats. Flexible schedule. For those interested, please contact Shannon Bishop at shannon@magiktheatre.org or 210.227.2751 x 112.

Volunteer Educators: Miss being in the classroom? Love working with children? Love reading and engaging with children’s literature? Become a volunteer educator. Your valuable service will include pre-visits to classrooms to prepare students for their upcoming field trip to The Magik Theatre. On the day of the field trip, you will be the main point of contact for the teachers, chaperones, and students to ensure they have a wonderful, edifying experience at Magik. Since you will be working closely with children, you will need to provide references, a background check, and sit for a brief interview and orientation. Please contact our Director of Education, JoJanie Moreno at jmoreno@magiktheatre.org or 210.227.2751 x 302.

Donations of Tools and Building Materials: We are always happy to look at your good-quality, well-maintained, gently-used tools to see if they are items we may need.  Magik also needs construction materials, such as wood longer than 6′, uncut sheets of plywood or luan, painting supplies, etc. All donations of tools and construction materials are subject to our Production Manager’s approval. You can rest assured that your prized tools will be in good hands, and you can write it off on your taxes. Please contact Rebecca Simons at rsimons@magiktheatre.org or 210.227.2751 x 209 to set up an appointment.
