Volunteers are one of the Grand’s most important resources. Our volunteers come from many backgrounds but share a common passion for the theatre and the Grand’s mission.
Please read about the Grand’s story and our commitment to Anti-Oppression Work to ensure you are aligned with our values. We have also updated our policies and protocols with respect to vaccination and mask mandates for patrons, staff, volunteers, and others who enter the building.
We welcome anyone interested in volunteering to email us. We are always on the lookout for enthusiastic and reliable individuals with outstanding customer service skills. Once we start preparing to open our doors safely, we will be in touch with you talk further about volunteer opportunities.
In line with our commitment to better represent the many diverse residents in our city, we encourage applications from folks who are 18+ from the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour) communities as well as members of the LGBTQ2+ community.
Volunteers are valued community ambassadors and most often assist with Front of House duties before, during, and after performances which include: ushering, greeting patrons, light tidying, coat check, and concession sales of drinks and snacks.
From time to time we also look for volunteer support to:
- Provide administrative and clerical support to staff.
- Assist with fundraising, special events, and community outreach activities.
- Host group backstage tours
Our Volunteers are acknowledged for all they contribute with great perks including complimentary tickets to our main stage shows and an opportunity to work alongside other like-minded theatre enthusiasts.
