BENEFITS OF CAVORT MEMBERSHIPS


For 40 years CAVORT has been the only organization in North America dedicated to supporting volunteers, and the staff they work with, at professional, non-profit theatres. Regardless of a theatre's volunteer structure (guild, association, individual, etc.), CAVORT has something to offer to both theatre and individual.
