What role can you play in the life of the Star Theatre?
Do you appreciate live theatre?
Do you enjoy meeting new people and trying new things?
YOU can play a key role in the success of The Star Theatre Company by volunteering!
Volunteers bring a dynamic energy and spirit to the theatre's performances.
Season shows, special events, and community productions are all a part of the volunteer experience.

We are looking for Volunteers for the following categories:

Usher Captain
Occurrence/Commitment: 7 or 8 times a year; set dates, scheduled ahead of time.
Time Frame: Evenings/Weekends
Description: Have a group of people you'd like to Usher with? If you can commit to bringing a group of 4-6 people to every show in the season, you would make a perfect Usher Captain. Ushers for our Star Theatre productions assist the House Manager by taking tickets, handing out programs, & showing patrons to their seats. In exchange for your Volunteer Hours, you and a guest are entitled to attend that performance for free. Volunteers who would like to be Usher Captains will be assigned, in advance, a date for ushering every show in the regular season and will get priority choice of Christmas Show assignments. Availability is limited. Volunteers interested in Ushering will be required to have attended an Usher Orientation before they will be permitted to perform all ushering duties. Please see below for the schedule of Usher Orientations.
