Volunteer with Team OOTA

The Opera on the Avalon Guild is a volunteer organization committed to the growth and success of opera in Newfoundland. Guild volunteers work side-by-side with artists, company members, and staff to enhance the value of OOTA’s productions. Membership in the Volunteer Guild offers the chance to give something back to the arts community while providing an opportunity to develop new skills and build on existing experience and knowledge. We welcome your involvement, no matter what your time commitment. 

Opportunities to volunteer with OOTA include

Tempos: Not sure where to get involved? This is a great committee to get your feet wet! Tempos will be called to work on short term or one-time projects throughout the year. 

Special Events: Assist in planning special events including OOTA’s annual fundraising gala. 

Marketing: Distribute materials at community programs and events or hang production posters throughout the city. 

Transportation: Provide airport transportation for visiting artists and production personnel. 

Libretti: Type and edit opera libretti. 

Mailing and Office Assistance: Assemble mailings for OOTA activities, answer phones, and provide office support. 

Housing: Provide temporary housing for visiting singers and seasonal company members. 

Lightwalkers, Dressers & Supers: Serve as an artist stand-in during lighting rehearsals, assist the costume crew backstage, or be an extra on stage.
