Featured Volunteer

Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization.

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.
