Join the North Carolina Theatre Curtain Callers!

The Curtain Callers are a community of volunteers that provide assistance and support to North Carolina Theatre in a variety of ways. Membership is open to anyone who has a love of theater and wants to support the cultivation of the Arts in their own backyard.

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 and working with the North Carolina Theatre Conservatory by providing additional volunteer support, fund raising and scholarships.   Curtain Callers contribute annually to the De Ann Jones Educational Scholarship.
