If you wish to be a part of the show and not be in the cast, we are always looking for backstage crew, as well as pit musicians. We love to feature our community members in whatever way they feel comfortable. 

If you wish to play in our pit orchestra, please email for information on our orchestra rehearsal schedule, and what instruments are left to be covered. 

We also need some volunteers to help build our set, help work backstage during the show and join our costuming team. If you are interested in being a part of our production crew through building, sewing or any of the backstage areas, please email to express interest and let us know how you would like to help out.

Theater is a great way to meet new people, as well as have a fun family bonding experience. Curtains Up Pagosa is always happy to grow our community of thespians by welcoming newcomers, both on stage and off.

Please come out and join us for this fun adventure and come with us “many moons ago in a far off place.”
