Host Homes Needed!

Become a Playhouse on Park host and get to know our actors up close and personal! Our hosts have found this a very enriching experience and often follow these actors’ blossoming careers. We frequently need to house directors/designers for a few days to 3 weeks, actors for 6 week periods (longer for musicals), and occasionally just need a day or two for someone to hang their hat while working with us. Some actors require private apartments; others simply a private bedroom and access to a bathroom and kitchen. Are you a snowbird? Need someone to water your plants and take in your mail? Did we mention the perks? Tax-deductible in-kind contribution, invitation to the cast party and final dress rehearsal, 2 free tickets to the performance of your choice and more. Just let us know of your interest and we will keep you posted on our needs. To volunteer or learn more, email Jonathan Katz or call 860-523-5900 ext 17!
