Become an Active Member

Players Workshop is an all-volunteer organization that produces amazing shows. As such, it depends on a large cast of characters to support its vision.


Membership is the main source of volunteers at Players Workshop. Membership is $20 per person annually. Member rewards include a free ticket to each production and all the work wanted. The work is really a love and a passion for the theater.


There are many opportunities at Players Workshop, on and off stage. In fact, there is much more going on off stage, than on. Volunteers are needed to answer phones, usher, serve on the board, distribute flyers, backstage hair and makeup, costumes, and help on special workdays, to name a few. Click here to download the membership brochure.  Fill it out and return it and your $20 to Players Workshop, PO Box 793, Burlington, IA 52601.  Or, contact Jayne Gobble at 319-470-3720 to learn more about membership.


The Board of Directors meets the first Wednesday of every month at 7 PM at the theater. Members are welcome to attend.
