“Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization”


It is the volunteers contributions of time and labor that ultimately make the LCAC’s vision a reality.


Be a part of helping connect the arts to the community. Contribute as a volunteer by hosting the Gallery, staffing a production at our Soper Reese Theatre and joining in our various events and projects.


Main Street Gallery


Our volunteer hosts & hostesses greet our visitors and make them feel welcome. Visitors will remember their visit to our Gallery when they feel your interest. You have the opportunity to ensure they will want to return and will tell their friends of our amazing artists.


Please call the Gallery at (707) 263-6658 or email


Soper Reese Theatre


Volunteers will assist with ticket sales, seating, concessions and more.


Please call the Theatre at (707) 263-0577 or email


Contact a LCAC representative to further understand how you can contribute our success.



Clara Carstensen


As Head Usher, Clara has been the go-to person at our Soper Reese Theatre for a while now.


She began volunteering at the Theatre at age 13 and has spent so much time there the staff and other volunteers like to joke that she needs her own room. She’s always been willing to fill in where ever needed. When she took an interest in lighting, Jeremiah French, the Theatre’s Lighting Director took her under his wing and taught her how it all worked. She says, “With all of the support that I get, it’s like having a second family, a home away from home.”


Clara is 17 and a junior in high school, though she takes most of her classes, including Stage Lighting, at Mendocino College. She is excited to have the opportunity to follow her passions.
