Starting in 2017, Arcade’s Leaderboard will shift from a collective group of volunteers to individuals with specific roles, based on the needs of the organization, donating their time, energy, and expertise to the Arcade. These roles all directly impact the operation of our non-profit organization, as well as its ever-expanding community of artists, audience members, students, and volunteers.

All unfilled positions are open for any individual to apply. If you see a position, filled or not, that’s in your area of interest and you’d like to help out, please see the highlighted box below and give us your information (many positions require any number of volunteers throughout the year). Also, if you have a skill you’d like to contribute, or see a need within the theater that isn’t listed below, reach out to us with your suggestion! We’re always interested in hearing from our community.

All Leaderboard positions are unpaid and volunteer-based. They do however come with perks, including:

  • free admittance, along with one guest, to all shows*
  • free classes*
  • discounts on special events and workshops
  • get-togethers throughout the year
  • first-to-know info about Arcade news and operation

*subject to availability, some exclusions may apply
