Volunteer Opportunities

Usher at our performances

First Stage is currently seeking volunteers to help with ushering duties during weekday school matinees and weekend performances. Performances times vary, but you may choose to work weekdays, weekend days or evenings. Volunteer duties may include taking tickets, helping our patrons find their seats or refreshments and merchandise during intermission.

The best part of your job - you get to see the performance for free!

If you're interested in becoming a volunteer usher, please email Michael Warren, house manager at mwarren@firststage.org.


Green Room Society (First Stage's Volunteer Organization)

The Green Room Society is a group of volunteers interested in contributing their time and talents to First Stage in a variety of ways.  Volunteers can include parents, family members, First Stage alumni, community members or anyone else who wishes to support First Stage.  Volunteer activities vary depending on the needs of the company and availability of the volunteer.  The Green Room Society meets monthly to learn about the ways to support Academy, Marketing, and Development staffs and much more!

The Green Room Society is led by Heather Crouse, a First Stage Theater Academy alum and proud Academy student parent.  To become involved in the Green Room Society, contact Heather at volunteer@firststage.org or (812) 201-4285.
