The Strawberry Theatre Workshop Board is made up of volunteers in the community that nurture the growth of the company's principal sources of support: audience and donors. The commitment is one meeting each month, and a promise to extend the public face of the organization into each member's community life.
Friends of the company interested in becoming trustees should attend as many of our plays as possible, then contact Strawshop by email, to talk to a Board member or be invited to a future meeting.
