Volunteer Positions

Become a General Volunteer or a Docent (Tour Guide)

Our volunteer positions are for both teens and adults who want to help make our visitors’ experiences more magical. General volunteers help at events like our puppet shows and DragonCon events. They include roles like greeters, ticket takers and workshop helpers. If you want to be more involved in tours, we also have docent positions. Our docents are extensively trained, so they can share facts about puppetry around the world. To learn more, visit one of the options below.
