TLS is always looking for Voluntary Members to enrich the organisation. Voluntary Members are people who might work as an actor, crew member, or musician. There are multiple roles to be filled, onstage and off. Scroll down to find out what what projects we need help with, and how to be placed in our Volunteer Database. 

What can you help us with? We are looking for people for:

Publicity-DayPub Day Volunteers

Participants meet up in a central part of the city, and are split into teams of 2 or more people, and given a packet of TLS marketing materials, including maps. Teams hang posters and distribute postcards in the various Frankfurt restaurants, hotels, stores, etc. After their leisurely walking tour, TLS invites everyone to a local bar for a beer on us.
