Volunteers provide a wide range of services supporting the Weinberg Center and its programs. We work hard to ensure the arts are sustained throughout our community. We hope that as you give your valuable time and efforts to us, we can provide you with fellowship, entertainment, leadership opportunities, personal growth and fulfillment. For more information about volunteering at the Weinberg, contact our Volunteer Coordinator Linda Despeaux at ldespeaux@comcast.net. Here are just some of the volunteer opportunities that are available:

Ticket Taker

Quick thinking skills are a necessity and the ability to discern left from right are a must! Ticket takers also assist the theatre management with the final ticket drop count.

Front of House Usher

These individuals primarily assist in playbill preparation and distribution and helping patrons get to their seats. Ushers also assist the theatre manager in enforcing liquor license rules and maintain a lookout over the audience for any problems or disturbances. For patrons arriving late, the usher explains that the performance has already started and the patrons will be seated at the back of the theatre until intermission, when they may proceed to their assigned seats.

Candy Concessions, Popcorn, and Souvenir Sales

The sales volunteers are responsible for the sale of candy, popcorn, and/or souvenirs before performances and during intermissions. The theatre management will provide a cash drawer.

Will Call

The will-call volunteer is often stationed in the historic ticket booth out front and is responsible for distributing previously purchased tickets. This volunteer needs to be able to deal with the public, problem solve, work independently, and hear and seewell.

Be creative!

If you’ve got a special talent or think you can help us meet a particular need, let us know. We encourage all members of the arts community to pitch in and help the Weinberg Center thrive.
