Thinking of joining our board?

StoryBook Theatre is Canada's largest volunteer-driven Theatres' for Young Audiences and families. In our almost 45 years of serving Calgary, we have fostered the love and passion for theatre arts in over one million people.  Each season we bring together some of the industries brightest emerging talents both on and off the stage to create some incredibly accessible theatre for the whole family.
We bring stories to life in a way that encourages children and their families to dream about who they are and may become, to explore the story from different perspectives, to think using inductive reasoning, and to connect to other people and ideas.

We are always looking for vibrant experienced community-focused individuals to join our volunteer board of directors. We seek individuals with a variety of experience and in particular, the following areas would be a great asset to our board: diversity, fundraising, accounting, marketing and communications.  The SBT Board of Directors is committed to achieving a member composition that is representative of the organization and community it serves, and to maintaining purposeful consideration to the inclusion of members of the following groups BIPOC, LGBTQ2S+ and persons with disabilities. 

How do Board Members serve the cause?
Board Members support StoryBook behind the scenes.  They attend regular meetings. They review and create policies. They participate on committees. Board members will participate in the creation of fundraising goals and plans. The board works towards meeting StoryBook’s vision to provide a vital performing arts organization known for its commitment to accessible and diverse family theatre programming. Consider joining our board and be part of this incredible Calgary legacy of theatre and community engagement.

We have the following expectation of our board members:

• Time Commitment: (6-12 hours per month)
