Call for Ushers and Front of House for What Happened in Vegas

The Kitchener-Waterloo Little Theatre Box Office is looking for smart-serve-certified volunteers to be house managers and ushers for our performances of What Happened in Vegas

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

  • September 21, 22, 23
  • September 28, 29, 30
  • October 5, 6, 7
 We'll need you there an hour before the show starts, so a 7:00 PM calltime.

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

Congratulations to our new 2017-2018 board of directors! We'll be getting organized and selecting our roles in July, but in the meantime, we're looking for officers and other people interested in volunteering behind-the-scenes!Our theatre is 100% volunteer-run and we need volunteers to make all your favourite events and operations happen. 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. 
  • Bookkeepers: Assist the Treasurer in keeping the Corporation’s books and records accurate and updated. A great role for those interested in business or accounting!
  • 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. 
  • Bar Manager: Decide what beer we sell! The bar manager is responsible for setting our alcohol menu, ordering supplies, and ensuring that we follow our license.
  • 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.

Teams & Special Projects for the 2017-2018 Season

We're looking for people interested in completing special projects, or working with a board member to fill part of their role. Some of these areas may become officer roles once the new board gets started. More opportunities will come available in the following months, but right now we are looking for:
  • Fundraising Team: We're looking for volunteers interested in writing grants and organizing fundraising activities like the Christmas Star program or the Silent Auction. Help us fund a second floor! 
  • Communications Team: Facebook, Twitter, email, posters, website! We do a lot of communicating and we'd love the help. We'd also love assistance from people with experience in web design, search engine optimization, or Google Adwords.
  • Graphic Designers: We are always looking for graphic designers who are willing to donate their services to assist in poster and program creation. The sky's the limit on what you can create!
  • Technical Team: Interested in helping out with technical projects? If you're interested in learning more about lighting, rigging, or have skills in tech, we'd love to have you help out our technical manager. A great spot for those who would be interested in being the Technical Manager in the future!
  • Other Skills: Do you have other skills that you'd like to offer us, or a special project that you've always wanted to see done? Send us an email and we'll find the perfect spot for you. 
If you're interested in any of these roles, or have any questions, please email . We'd love to have you help!
