The Music Hall would not be able to present one single show without its incredible team of dedicated volunteers. Over 175 people volunteer at the Music Hall and help serve the 85,000+ patrons who pass through the its doors each year.
WHAT IS THE “VOLUNTEER TIP JAR”?
At the concessions table is a “Volunteer Tip Jar”. We encourage our patrons to support this fund while visiting the theater in appreciation of our volunteers’ efforts and the services they provide.The volunteers themselves choose how to spend these funds. They usually opt to put them towards Volunteer Appreciation parties which are thrown two or three times a year.
HOW DO I BECOME A VOLUNTEER
Send an email to Volunteer Coordinator Karina E. Ringeisen at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address, and phone number. You will be contacted with additional information and to set up an appointment for an interview and orientation. Once you have received orientation, you will be able to sign up for performances and other volunteer opportunities. All volunteers must be 18 years old or older.
WHAT DO VOLUNTEERS DO?
Volunteers scan tickets, usher patrons to their seats, and/or help with the concession and merchandise tables. Volunteers may also provide assistance in the administrative office or with painting and building upkeep.
WHAT TYPE OF COMMITMENT IS EXPECTED OF VOLUNTEER USHERS?
Ushers are expected to arrive 1.5 hours before showtime and stay until the end of the show. The commitment to volunteer should be viewed as a part-time job. The Music Hall expects the same level of high standards of professionalism from its volunteer ushers as it does from its paid staff members. Each new volunteer must attend orientation and follow-up training sessions.
WHERE DO VOLUNTEERS PARK?
Visit out parking map. Transportation and parking are the responsibility of the volunteers.
WHAT DO VOLUNTEER USHERS WEAR?
The Music Hall provides volunteer t-shirts and the volunteers’ own black pants/skirts and black shoes complete the uniform.
DO VOLUNTEERS SEE MUSIC HALL PERFORMANCES FOR FREE?
Volunteers do not receive a “free” ticket to see shows although volunteers working in the theater during performances may often see all or part of a performance.
