Call for Ushers and Front of House for Once Upon a Mattress

The Kitchener-Waterloo Little Theatre Box Office is looking for smart-serve-certified volunteers to be house managers and ushers for our performances of Once Upon a Mattress

You can volunteer to help out for any of the following performances, and you can volunteer for more than one:

  • November 23, 24, 25 8:00 PM
  • November 25, 2:00 PM
  • November 30, 8:00 PM
  • December 1,2, 8:00 PM
  • December 2, 2:00 PM
  • December 7, 8, 9, 8:00 PM
  • December 9, 2:00 PM
 We'll need you there an hour before the show starts, so a 7:00 PM calltime (or 1:00 PM call time for a matinee).

At least one volunteer per night must be smart serve certified and be able to produce a valid card on the night you will be volunteering. If you do not have smart serve, you can still help out but cannot handle any alcohol or sales.
 
The House Managers sell tickets at the door, interact with the stage manager, mind the lobby during the show, and tally the money at the end of the night.  They also help the usher with the concession stand if needed. The Ushers run the concession stand, help people find seats, sit in the theatre to assist patrons during the show (and watch it) and assist the House Manager as necessary. As front of house staff, you'll be entitled to a free ticket.  Ushers will see the performance for free on the show that they usher.  House Managers are able to see the performance for free on any other show that they aren't House Manager.
 
 If you are interested in volunteering, please email boxoffice@kwlt.org with the performance(s) you can help out with.

Officers for the 2017-2018 Season

Check out the roles available and email info@kwlt.org with your interest.
 
Officer Roles
There are quite a few officer roles that are open to non-board members and we're looking for volunteers. Officers fill a very specific role at KWLT, helping to keep an area of our operations running smoothly. Officers report to a specific role, or to the board of directors at large. They are welcome, but not required to attend board meetings. 
  • Sponsorship Officer: We're looking for someone who would like to coordinate program ads and other forms of show sponsorship. You'd help us reach out to companies, coordinate ad placement, and brainstorm new ways to build corporate partnership. An organized and outgoing person would excel in this role, especially someone who is interested in sales or business development.
  • Analytics Officer: We're looking for someone to comb through our Google Analytics, ticketing, and social media data to provide reports and suggest improvements. This person would also help us set up regular reporting and new business practices. 
  • Special Interest Officers: Do you have something you'd like to get done around the theatre? We are always happy to give you the support you need to implement a new system, start a new event, or help another officer with their tasks. If there's a board member whose portfolio you are interested in, please contact them about opportunities to volunteer with them.
