Volunteer at Out on a Limb

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization, we depend on the generosity of our volunteers to help us reach our goals and fulfill our mission. We simply couldn’t do what we do without these amazing people and their willingness to share their talents with us. There are many ways to get involved and make a difference.


It takes a lot of people and a lot of love to bring our productions to life. Volunteering in our costume/prop shop is a fun way to work behind the scenes and help us create a beautiful product. Ways to volunteer:

  • Costuming: Any level of experience is appreciated! Help with sewing, cutting, doing fittings, etc. 
  • Sets and Props: If you're handy with tools or a paintbrush, consider sharing your skills. 
  • Logistics and Transportation: Help fashion perfect performance space and get us there.
