Seeking Volunteers for The Winter's Tale

Volunteer responsibilities may include: passing out playbills, setting up and breaking down chairs, collecting surveys, cleaning up at the end of the night, directing patrons to facilities, accessibility services, assisting with rental chair operations, and other duties assigned by the Front of House staff. Volunteers arrive 1.5-2 hours before show time and are finished 15-30 min after the performance ends. All volunteers are invited to view the production from the Friends Section, our reserved donor seating area, when not performing duties and have access to discounted concessions and merchandise. Reach out to us if you have any questions or need a disability-related accommodation to perform our volunteer tasks. Click here for more information about volunteering!

All performances will meet or exceed the most up to date state, city, and industry safety protocols regarding COVID-19. CSC will require all staff and volunteers to provide proof of a completed FDA-approved vaccine regimen for COVID-19 with a bivalent booster. This policy allows for exemption accommodations for disability or religious reasons. Additional protocols regarding masking and/or testing will be announced closer to the program dates.
