Volunteer greeting audience members and scanning tickets


Each season, more than 400 volunteers from the Dayton area donate more than 50,000 hours of their time to Dayton Live. Volunteers work as ticket scanners, ushers and bartenders at the Victoria Theatre, Schuster Center, PNC Arts Annex, and The Loft Theatre. Ushers are responsible for seating patrons, enforcing house policies, assisting patrons, and answering questions.

Volunteers are expected to attend an orientation, training sessions, and commit to working a minimum of 20 performances per season. The commitment to volunteering should be viewed as a part-time job. We expect the same high standards of professionalism from our volunteers as we do from our paid staff members!
