Volunteer Opportunities

Trollwood Performing Arts School offers rewarding volunteer opportunities working with positive and fun people to benefit a great cause! There’s a place for everyone at Trollwood! You can volunteer in any area that interests you and no experience is required. We’d love for YOU to join the Trollwood volunteer force. Without our dedicated volunteers, Trollwood would not be able to have such a positive impact on the youth of our region.


We are seeking volunteers to help with costume alterations and ushers for Totally Trollwood Musical, Trollwood Children's Theatre, and Trollwood Players in July and early August.


You may sign up for volunteer opportunities by emailing Programming Assistant Macy Scharmer at scharmm@fargo.k12.nd.us or Program Coordinator Nancy Glaser at glasern@fargo.k12.nd.us.
