Sun Theatre needs volunteers

The Gothenburg Community Playhouse seeks families, businesses, service groups, friends and individuals to volunteer at the Sun Theatre.

Playhouse board member Khris Jinks said volunteers run the theatre during movie weekends and do things like selling tickets, making popcorn, selling concessions and cleaning the theatre.

“Our volunteers are the key to keeping our entertainment affordable,” Jinks said.

The Sun Theatre has remained self-supporting through the individual donations and general memberships, volunteerism, grants and income derived from movies, concessions, live productions and concerts.

As a nonprofit, Jinks said money received is reinvested into the theatre.

“Our success and longevity can only be attributed to the commitment of our outstanding community volunteers from both the past and present,” she said. “Thank you for helping us keep ‘The Sun’ shining bright.”

She said the cinema side of the business has continually provided first-run movies 48-plus weekends a year Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the most affordable prices in the region.

Jinks said the playhouse side offers productions and strives to bring the community the highest quality of varied entertainment in the form of outside productions, talent shows and live musical concerts.
