VOLUNTEERS

Volunteers are at the heart of The Albany Theatre, and we are always on the lookout for friendly, enthusiastic people who are keen to learn and be part of the team.

Our volunteers give their time and talents to help run shows at the theatre. We have so much to offer anyone who volunteers with us including a chance to make new friends, the opportunity to learn new skills, keep existing skillsets fresh, work towards paid employment and even free theatre tickets for the volunteering hours you work.

Full training is given, and we encourage all volunteers by providing a supportive environment to learn.

Volunteers take on roles within all areas of the theatre such as front of house (ushering, bar, & kiosk), box office, backstage, events, and marketing.

WHAT ROLES ARE AVAILABLE?

With the news that The Albany Theatre has secured funding for exciting development plans that will create three new performance/flexible spaces, we are now looking to recruit new volunteers to join our Teams (find out more about our building development plans here).

Specifically, we invite applications to join our Events, Bar (including kiosk and catering), and Box Office Teams. Depending on your skills and experience, there are opportunities in each team to join the volunteer Leadership group.

Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of three sessions a month (each 4-5 hours).

Below is an outline of what each team does:

As part of the box office team you’ll be helping to sell tickets, both in person and by responding to telephone enquiries, whilst also and handing tickets to patrons who pick them up “on the night”. The Albany uses the Spektrix ticket system – full training will be given.

(also kiosk and catering) – The Albany Theatre is only accepting volunteers aged 18 or above to work on the bar, however, you do not have to have any experience – just a passion and commitment for great service while under some pressure when we have a busy show such as Elvis or Giovanni Pernice! Full training will be given.

Ushers, Front of House Managers and Event Planners are all volunteers at the Albany, supported by our paid Events staff. From the moment an event is booked in – Main House, Studio(s) or non-show events such as rehearsals, meetings and conferences – the volunteer Events Team takes over to ensure every occasion is successful delivered, so there are opportunities for event planning. Full training will be given as appropriate.
