Box Office Volunteers: selling Tickets Box Office hours are 10- 2 pm Monday.-Saturday 2 weeks prior to show through to the end of the show. We need volunteers 1 hr. prior to show opening, for the evening sales as well. You don’t have to commit to every day or every show, just when you are available to help. Any time is greatly appreciated.
Intermission Refreshments: Volunteers would be asked to make or bake finger foods to sell during intermission of our shows. Things like but not limited to; cookies, fudge, and brownies for example. They are needed at every performance. If you could bake for one performance that would be great!
Afterglow: Is A reception, that we rely solely on volunteers, for our patrons on opening night, (First Friday) our budget doesn’t allow for these anymore so our directors have to find their own donors for or’derve type foods and beverage. If you are interested we’ll send you a schedule of the shows so you can pick the show that best fits your schedule.
Ushers: Are asked to come 1hr prior to show. They help patrons find the Box Office, Will Call, Restrooms and their seats once the doors open. The usher sells the refreshments at intermission and clean up the refreshments at the end of intermission.
50/50 Raffle: Are asked to come ½ hr prior to show, sell tickets during intermission and select the winning ticket at the end of intermission.
