Kirk Players are looking for volunteers with experience, or those that want to apprentice, to assist with the many technical roles in our productions. If you have a technical background, some experience, or just want to participate in theatre, please join us! Based on your background, experience and interests we will find a role for you. We are willing to mentor you if you have interest but lack experience. Below is a brief overview of the types of roles available. All of these areas need people on "crews"; team members that help with all of the action on and off stage. If you are interested please join us at any rehearsal or call our Artistic Director, Paddy Lynn at 847-566-6391 or email her at This email address is being protected from spambots.
