CPA is looking for individuals with knowledge of theater that can help facilitate development and fundraising to promote CPA’s growth.  We are looking for board members from all fields and backgrounds with an interest and passion for theater, education, community, and volunteerism.  Leadership experience in business or community organizations is a plus.  Skills in any of the following areas could be an asset:  grant writing, communications, marketing, fundraising, development, event planning, community networking, bookkeeping, volunteerism, and/or nonprofit management or board experience.  Our organization is expanding to reach more children.

You can help us give kids an experience they will remember for the rest of their lives!

  • There will be an annual retreat for planning.
  • Committees of the board meet at various intervals based on their own needs.
  • Board members are asked to attend as many shows/events as possible including fundraising events.
  • Due to expansion, we have multiple positions available!


Children’s Performing Arts is experiencing significant growth due to growing community demands and a new facility/location.  We are expanding programs, growing our staff, board and volunteers.  Our goals include establishing ourselves in our marketplace with consistent and focused messaging, increasing our division of labor and accountability, expanding our board including key volunteer roles, and establishing relationships with funders and donors.  In order to accomplish these goals, we need key volunteers to serve as organizational Ambassadors.

  1. Donate/pledge to Children’s Performing Arts
  2. Provide linkage with corporations and foundations or community organizations
  3. Be a positive spokesperson for Children’s Performing Arts, learn key messages and elevator speech
