Volunteering is a great way to get involved with your community and support the arts.
Do you have a passion for the performing arts? Looking for a way to see theatre for FREE? As a not for profit charity, the Firehall is thankful for its volunteers and their time and commitment. Our volunteers play a crucial role in the Firehall’s smooth functioning as a theatre venue, artistic hub, and community member. We are looking for individuals who are out-going, responsible, friendly and reliable.
The volunteer scheduling works as a call out on a first come, first served basis. As opportunities arise, we will send out a notice with show and time information and then schedule according to specific needs and your availability.
As an usher you play a very important role before, during and after each performance.
