Volunteer Social & Orientation
Come meet and mingle with your volunteer colleagues! This event is for both existing volunteers and new volunteers. New volunteers will learn about the program and its policies and will have the opportunity to talk with staff and existing volunteers. Two tours of the Opera House will also be offered. Light hors-d’oeuvres and refreshments will be served.
New ushers for the Winter Season meet to train for the upcoming season. There will be a large group meeting to discuss the Usher Handbook, followed by practical training involving seating, life-safety scenarios, and customer service scenarios.
Volunteer Appreciation Event
We honor all of our volunteers with this event. Awards for Outstanding Volunteers and the Volunteer of the Year will be given out. Heavy hors d'oeuvres with wine/champagne/beer/water/soft drinks.
Each season, Volunteers are given the opportunity to attend selected final dress rehearsals. These tickets—1 for the volunteer and 1 for a guest—are available in the lobby of the Opera House an hour before the rehearsal begins and are given out on a first-come-first-served basis; there are around 190 balcony seats available for Volunteers.

If you require accessible seating, please contact Scott Guinn prior to the rehearsal to arrange it. These dress rehearsals are also attended by schools, donors, and special guests. Each group has its own section of the theater and is asked to stay in that assigned section. Like all performances, accessible seating is limited and should be arranged prior to the rehearsal.
