Theatre Guest Services

Put on your customer service hat! Join us on performance nights and give our patrons the best experience ever. You might distribute programs, be an usher, answer questions, work the coat check, or greet the patrons arriving. If you know how to make people feel right at home – and you love the fun of “show night” - this is for you!” We ask our volunteers to complete a total of 20 hours per calendar year. How you complete those hours is up to you and your availability. All volunteers receive full orientation training from our Front of House Manager. 

Hours: Evenings and weekends with limited mornings and afternoons.

Once you have been accepted as a Theatre Guest Services Volunteer, you will also have the option to participate in our subcommittees listed below:
