2020 Phipps Front of House Volunteers
Volunteering at a performance provides you with a great afternoon or evening out, seeing the show at no cost, and a chance to represent The Phipps Center for the Arts as you greet and assist patrons while at the Center.
You represent all of us when you volunteer, and The Phipps could not survive without you. You are required to wear a white top (not a black sweater over a white top), and black skirt/pants as your “uniform”. You will receive a name tag on a necklace to wear when you arrive from the House Manager. This will make it is easy for patrons to spot you if they need help, or are just coming into the theater.
House Managers - arrive 1 hour earlier than the start of the show. The times listed in SignUp Genius are show times, not arrival times. You must already have prior training to sign up as a House Manager. Please greet your other volunteers and hand out name tags from the Control Room. Remember to collect the name tags after the performance.
Ticket Takers/ Dismiss After Show - arrive 45 minutes earlier than the start of the show. The times listed in SignUp Genius are show times, not arrival times. You will be taking tickets at the Theater door prior to entry. There will be no ushers and patrons will seat themselves. After the show you will stand in the middle aisles, starting at row J, holding patrons back in their seats, waiting for row K to leave the theater, after K has left, you will move down to row H and continue this method all the way down. Please watch the end seats asking patrons to wait for their row to be dismissed before existing their row.
Restroom Attendants - arrive 45 minutes earlier than the start of the show. You will be needed after the show as well until most patrons have left. The times listed in SignUp Genius are show times, not arrival times. An attendant will need to stand outside the women’s and the men’s in the lobby, as well as one person in the hallway of the North restroom. Paying close attention that only two patrons at a time are in the restroom and asking patrons to wait social distancing if there are already two patrons inside the restroom.
All Volunteers Please read the related files below. Volunteers are required to sign the attached COVID WAIVER before participating. This is a one-time waiver to complete. It is preferred you complete this in advance of volunteering and send to [email protected] or if need be bring the paper copy with you and place in the completed waivers folder outside the Administrative Offices. Thank you!
When signing up to volunteer each person must be listed by name, we can no longer accept the same name multiple times as we need to know who to expect volunteering. In the comment section you may list someone else name if you are signing this person up.
Entering and exiting the building can be through the main doors or the north doors as no sign in will be needed.
Keep those friendly smiles coming as your welcome others, and enjoy your volunteering. We are SO glad to have the doors open again!
