North Texas Performing Arts prides itself as an organization that is managed by professionals but MADE POSSIBLE BY VOLUNTEERS!

Thank you to the diverse group of 100+ Board Members and thousands of parents, families and patrons across our family of theatres who volunteer thousands of hours in support of NTPA, the performing arts and youth arts education. It is because of your dedication that we can continue to pursue our mission to develop the character of youth through performing arts education and family entertainment.

OUR STARBASE is intended to give our volunteers their “ONE STOP” starting point to make it EASY to be an NTPA Volunteer!  So if you are a show volunteer, committee volunteer or board member, this is your LAUNCH PAD to your volunteer activities!

All volunteers must abide by NTPA’s Code of Conduct. For questions, please contact or call (972) 422-2575.
