Soper Reese Honors Its Volunteers


At the Soper Reese Theatre’s first annual volunteer appreciation gathering, held in early February this year, more than 40 people were present at the theatre to be acknowledged for the donation of their time, efforts and positive attitudes in helping the theatre provide a wide range of educational, cultural and artistic programs to the local community. For many it was their first chance to meet fellow volunteers who work in areas different from their own. The group shared ideas and entertaining stories as they enjoyed appetizers, drinks and live music by Travis Rinker.  


“The Soper Reese Theatre held this event to bring attention to those who have made this resource to our community possible. It is their commitment that makes the Soper Reese truly a community theatre,” explained Michael Adams, the theatre’s Executive Director.

Andrea Adams, who heads up the usher and ticket taker volunteer group, and Jane Ruggles, who is in charge of the box office, worked together to organize the event. Nearly 150 people were contacted including those actively volunteering now or having volunteered in the past. The invitees included volunteers who assist with running the concession stand and bar, manning the box office, putting up posters throughout the county, or acting as ushers and ticket takers. Volunteer house managers, stage crew, facility maintenance and construction workers were also honored.

For anyone interested in joining the theatre volunteer crew, please contact Carol Hays at 707-263-0577 or The theatre is located at 275 So. Main Street in Lakeport.
