At the heart of Conejo Players Theatre is its volunteer members. Our theatre is unique in the Conejo Valley, as it's operated on a solely volunteer basis since its inception in 1958; the theatre's board members, actors, production staff, and technical crew do not receive any monetary compensation for their services. But the rewards of volunteering with our theatre are many -- we provide a medium for creative self-expression, with opportunities to get involved both onstage and behind-the-scenes ... acting, directing, producing, stage managing, scenic design and construction, theatrical lighting and sound, costuming, and the list goes on.
We're proud of the dedication of our volunteers, and the services they provide are invaluable to our success. It's our volunteers -- both adults and children -- that have allowed Conejo Players to thrive since its humble beginnings. In return, our volunteers gain invaluable creative experiences while enjoying the fun and friendships that come with working in the ever-evolving atmosphere of live theatre. We invite you to join us in our efforts to support the cultural, educational, and entertainment needs of the community through the arts!
Become a Member
Membership at Conejo Players Theatre is easy! Just fill out a form -- available by mail or in the CPT lobby -- and pay a $1 registration fee. This entitles you to associate membership status; once you've participated in at least one volunteer activity at the theatre, you become a full voting member. There are no annual dues, and members retain their voting rights until such time as a two-year period has elapsed without the member participating in a volunteer activity.
To become a member, call the theatre at (805) 495-3715 to request a membership form by mail -- or just stop by and pick one up in the lobby. We look forward to welcoming you on board!
Every year, rather than making presentations for "Best Play, "Best Director," etc., Conejo Players Theatre rewards contributions made by members and nonmembers alike. At each year's Harlequin Awards Banquet, actors and other volunteers get a chance to applaud their own -- people who rehearsed for countless hours; toiled behind the scenes, in the tech booth or building sets; selling tickets; and doing all the other tasks that come together in the performances seen by our audiences.
