ENCORE Volunteers

Members of all ages join our volunteer community, ENCORE, and help in many areas across the Theatre:
  • Ushering public performances and school shows.
  • Delivering thousands of holiday gifts to Charlotte children through The Winter Wonderland Shop.
  • Inventorying costumes with our Production team.
  • Hanging artwork created by school children attending our shows. 
  • Checking in guests at our annual gala.
  • Selling concessions during OnStage weekend with our Education team.
Without volunteer support, Children’s Theatre of Charlotte wouldn’t be able to provide high quality, innovative programming inspiring generations to explore the wonder of their world.

The Legacy of ENCORE


A volunteer legacy group was formed by ladies from the Junior League of Charlotte.

Late 1970s

Children’s Theatre of Charlotte’s volunteers transitioned from constituting the entire organization to becoming an AUXILIARY.

Our annual fundraising gala


The AUXILIARY adopts the name ENCORE with Santa’s Bag and the Masque Ball becoming official fundraising events under its umbrella.



The Masque Ball becomes Celebrate!, an event commemorating the 65th anniversary of the Theatre.

Santa's Bag


Santa’s Bag celebrates 45 years of bringing the holiday spirit to the community.

Cake in the Face


ENCORE helps coordinate our "Cake in the Face" fundraiser, and the Theatre far surpasses the goal for the event.
