We have fun here…that is for sure!
There are many ways you can volunteer and be a part of the ongoing success of the Vergennes Opera House!
Event Volunteers: This involves being present during our terrific productions as an usher, ticket taker, seat finder, or ticket booth sales person. Sometimes this involves working in the green room making sure our performers have all the comforts we pride ourselves on. This is a great way to meet your neighbors and friends as well as some terrific performers. After the performance this involves some light clean up and chair stacking facilitation.
Set-up/Break-down Volunteers: Do you like exercise with a purpose? This is a great way to get some exercise and have the satisfaction of seeing the results of your labor. Moving, setting, stacking chairs and tables are part of the duties of this volunteer. You’d be surprised how fast the work goes when you are joined by a couple of other volunteers.
Volunteer Liaison: Many folks rent the Opera House for a variety of events from weddings to corporate dinners to film screenings. Prior to renting, many folks want to get a tour of the space. Our volunteer liaison meets with the prospect(s), shows the space and answers questions. This person would typically unlock and lock the space as well. If you fancy yourself as a great ambassador for Vergennes and the Opera House…and you have a bit of interest in event planning…then this volunteer position is ideal for you.
All Around Volunteer: You might be called on for any number of interesting needs by the VOH Board of Directors or renters or prospects. Involvement could range from hanging posters around town and the area to stuffing envelopes for special mailings.
The entire success of the Vergennes Opera House lies in the talent, time and generosity of our volunteers, which includes our Board of Directors. Being a part of this team feels good and it does good…for the Opera House, for the community, and for the arts.
