Curtain Callers can be seen in the lobby of every Main Stage production, selling merchandise, greeting patrons at the door, taking photos at the Photo Booth and welcoming Backer's Club members. They are also busy behind the scenes, welcoming out-of-town cast and crew, providing a home-cooked cast dinner for each production, working with the North Carolina Theatre Conservatory by providing additional volunteer support and scholarships.  We contribute annually to the De Ann Jones Educational Scholarship.
