What our volunteers are saying...

“I have been volunteering for the theatre as an usher since it opened. It has been an enriching experience and has given me many exciting evenings as I welcome audience members to a wide variety of shows that provide happy memories long into the future.” – Anonymous

"Volunteering at the Theatre is a very enjoyable experience for me. Meeting people, working with other volunteers, and a great staff (helpful, pleasant, creators of a happy atmosphere), as well as getting to see a variety of shows are all part of the 'up' experience. Terrific place!!! Terrific people!!!" – Lyla
