Join the Board of Directors

The Woodminster Summer Musicals are produced with the support of a dedicated Advisory Board of Directors, long-time East Bay residents and community boosters. Over the years, Producers Associates' tenancy has helped keep the amphitheater and surrounding area maintained, discouraged vandalism, and made a number of substantial improvements to the performance facility, including audience seating as well as improved lighting and sound systems. They have worked with the Friends of Oakland Parks and Recreation and the City’s Park & Rec Department to facilitate a number of other improvements, and have kept their organization financially solvent for more than 40 years while contributing to the artistic vitality and economic health of the City of Oakland. More information about Producers Associates here. All new members serve for one or more years as Associate Board members to learn about the organization and find their strengths as Woodminster supporters before moving onto the Advisory Board.

Producers Associates Seeks NEW BOARD MEMBERS who will:

• Enthusiastically support and attend Woodminster Summer Musicals regularly.

• Enjoy musical theater and support the perpetuation of this American art form.

• Support an established effort which provides a training ground for young people to work with professionals in a professional atmosphere, on stage and backstage.

• Support an organization which helps keep young people busy during the summer in a constructive atmosphere.

• Support an established organization which provides participation for community people who love to sing and dance and where they can continue to improve their skills.

• Help us to raise the difference between income from ticket sales, contributions and our operating budget.

• New participants will serve on the Associate Board ("Woodbackers") for one year where they will be expected to attend at least one board meeting and help the Advisory Board sell drawing tickets on performance nights.
