“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”Margaret Mead

Volunteering at the Thousand Islands Playhouse is a great way to get involved with the community while supporting the arts.  Our volunteers are a vital part of the Theatre.  They help us greet patrons, take tickets, provide information about our shows, sell 50/50 tickets and assist with Special Events. Other opportunities are picking up visiting artists and delivering them to accommodations and assisting our Young Company during public performances.

Required Skills

* Excellent interpersonal and oral communication
* Full physical mobility due to stairs (in Springer Theatre only; Firehall Theatre is completely accessible)
* Ability to stay calm during an emergency
* Punctuality and reliability

​Time Commitment
​​* 2 to 3 hours for the Springer Theatre
* 2 to 4 hours​  for the Firehall Theatre
* 1 hour for audience corralling during public Young Company performances
​​* 1 hour for artist ground transfers​

Complimentary admission to shows during our regular season.

 *We are currently looking for individuals interested in ushering at both the Springer and Firehall Theatres until mid October.  Ushers greet patrons, take tickets, assist with seating and provide information about the shows.*

​​If any of these opportunities appeal to you then we’d like to talk to you!​ Please contact Susie Allan at susie@1000islandsplayhouse.com
