Summer Billet Host Program
“Billeting a young actor? In my home? For the summer? I'm not so sure!”
Yes! Billet hosting with Theatre on the Ridge is an enriching and simple way to support professional summer theatre in our community. Instead of opening pocketbooks, our billet hosts open their homes to one of our emerging professional actors and simultaneously open themselves to a very personally rewarding experience.
“I am so happy that I was convinced to do just that. I have actually volunteered again to provide a home-stay for another actor from Theatre on the Ridge.”
As members of the TIAO Safe Travels Stamp program we are very aware of the importance and priority of ensuring the safe health and well-being of all our participants from artists, staff, volunteers, audience and supporters, including our billet hosts and we have put special health and safety accommodations in place for 2022.
In lieu of rent or payment, billet hosts may be issued a charitable tax receipt (to a maximum of $2,500) upon request.

Corporate and Community Partner Support
We believe theatre has the power to communicate stories that enable audiences and participants to think, feel and broaden their insights into the world and human nature, making for stronger more compassionate communities. We are also committed to programs that support the growth of new theatre works, artists, audiences and the work of other theatre groups in Durham.
We invite community leaders to support our work. Take a moment to learn more about us in the backgrounder provided below.
