Volunteer Ushers needed for both our Main Stage Playhouse and our Children's Theater
Miners Alley Playhouse is a small Professional Theatre in the heart of Golden, Colorado. As a non-profit venue, we rely on a friendly, dependable volunteer base to help us thrive as a vibrant part of the Golden community. Once we are able to re-open safely in the aftermath of the pandemic, we will need many volunteers to join our Miners Alley Family.
If you love live theater and are interested in becoming a Volunteer Usher and seeing plays for free, please contact me:

Planning Committee Volunteer - This is a continuous volunteer position where you would help with planning the festival throughout the year. The committee typically meets one (1) time per month for approximately 2 hours in the Denver Metro area. Committee members assist with screening and judging film submissions, soliciting sponsors, fundraising, marketing, logistic planning and more! If you are interested in this option, you would be added to a specific email list to receive information on monthly meetings and would be asked to attend most monthly meetings as well as assist on smaller tasks/projects outside of meetings.
Every year, CASA Jeffco/Gilpin volunteers are appointed to over 300 cases of child abuse and neglect, serving more than 370 children in the 1st Judicial District. CASA Jeffco/Gilpin is lucky to have the support of over 330 active CASA Jeffco/Gilpin volunteers. Yet, we are only able to serve 34% of the cases that need a child advocate, leaving hundreds of children without a voice in our court system. The devastating effects of broken lives can be changed when a CASA volunteer steps up to advocate for child abuse victims.
Our dedicated, highly trained volunteers are the very cornerstone of our program at CASA Jeffco/Gilpin. They strive to ensure that children in protective custody receive the necessary services for their physical, emotional and educational well-being and safety. Volunteers are ordinary citizens that make an extraordinary commitment to perform a key role in breaking the cycle of child abuse, one child at a time.
After a 30 hour training and being sworn in by a judge- CASA volunteers spend time with a child weekly to develop a fuller picture of the child’s life, get to know their unique history and make informed recommendations to the courts. We are ALWAYS in search of more volunteer advocates.
