Bread & Puppet Performances Oct 6 & 7th at 7pm

Bread & Puppet Theater is an internationally celebrated company that champions a visually rich, street-theater brand of performance art filled with music, dance and slapstick. Its shows are political and spectacular, with huge puppets made of paper maché and cardboard. We are thrilled to welcome them to the Avalon Theatre!

We're looking for volunteer ushers! Help welcome folks to our theatre. Hand out programs. And, you can watch the show for free! Sign Up to Usher Here

Stay tuned for upcoming opportunities!

General Volunteer Opportunities

Main Stage

Get involved in the behind the scenes work that goes into mounting new shows — set building, puppet-making, sewing, ushering, and stage managing.


If you have skills and an interest in community-based programming, long-range planning, budgeting, fund-raising, the legal field, or neighborhood issues, please consider joining our Board of Directors.


Throughout the year, HOBT uses volunteer interns in a variety of capacities. If you have some experience and skills in painting, papier maché, set construction, technical theater, working with children, or are interested in a volunteer arts management internship, please tell us about your interest, background and availability. All of our internships are unpaid (unfortunately).
