Volunteer Roles

Theatre Network is seeking enthusiastic and dependable volunteers to join our team at an exciting time – in the newly rebuilt Roxy Theatre at 10708 124 Street. Volunteers play an integral role at Theatre Network and The Roxy in welcoming and seating patrons, and assisting our Front of Staff in the smooth operation of the theatre. Thank you for your help! 

Positions

Ushers
Ushers are stationed at the theatre entrances before performances. They scan patron’s tickets, and help people get to their seats. They also sit in and watch the performance in assigned volunteer seating. During the performance, they keep an eye out for things like: patrons leaving mid-performance who may need some assistance, latecomer arriving and being seated (if applicable), and emergency situations that they need to relay to Theatre Network’s Front of House Staff. 

Bar Volunteers
Bar volunteers help with bar service. They must be ProServe certified (if you’re not, let us know and we can help you get certified!). They safely serve drinks under the supervision of Theatre Network’s Front of House staff. They may use our point of sale system, or may just focus on serving while staff take care of the sales system – you can discuss your preference with the volunteer coordinator and the staff on the night. Let us know if you’d like to watch the performance so there’s time to get you seated. We can’t guarantee a seat in the theatre, but will gladly seat bar volunteers on the Mezzanine if we’re full. 

Other Roles
Other roles may be available on a per show basis. More info will be provided if this is the case!

Staff are supported to wear masks to their comfortability level, as well as in communicating with the public about Covid-19. Note that Theatre Network may change Covid-19 guidelines at any time.
