West Valley Performing Arts Center
On average, how many hours a week should a Program Liaison expect to commit to this program?
Volunteer shifts are generally 2 hours each. A partnership liaison can expect an additional 1-2 hours each week.

Who does your program serve? 
  • The West Valley Performing Arts Center is a non-profit, community theatre supported by West Valley City. It looks to serve the most diverse population in Utah through the performing arts in an effort to involve these communities and create equitable and accessible opportunities.
  • The main goal is to serve the West Valley Community. This is done by staging different plays or musical performances. Volunteers can choose a variety of ways to help such as actually getting involved in the production, ushering, or helping in the Box office to understand the administrative side as well.
  • On the off months, we offer other opportunities to help with marketing (such as designing), sitting in on production meetings, helping construct things, ushering lectures or setting up or helping with cultural events - we offer a lot of opportunities both at the theatre and at the Utah Cultural Celebration center. We have lectures, events, and performances almost every week of the year, so we have opportunities everywhere!

Are there specific days/times that you must be available?
  • Thursday – Saturday for productions (7:30 pm Thursday & Friday, 2:00 & 7:30 pm on Saturday)

What are your unique duties as the Program Liaison that are separate from your Bennion Center-specific responsibilities?
