Volunteering at the Kenton
There are four departments that really need your help!
All of the work that goes on to keep the Kenton Theatre running smoothly is undertaken by volunteers, some giving a few hours once in a while and others giving a lot.
Front of House - involves meeting and greeting patrons, selling programmes, helping with interval coffee & ice-cream sales and being in attendance during the performance. At times the role can be physically demanding with long periods of standing, however, the upside is that you will be contributing to a positive audience experiences and from time to time, you will be able to sit inside the auditorium and see the show as part of your duties.
Licensed Bar - involves serving drinks from the licensed bar in the foyer before the performance and during the interval.
Box Office - open for four hours daily Monday to Friday and three hours on Saturday mornings, as well as evenings when there is a performance. Daytime shifts are two hours each, on a day and at a time of your choice.
Artistic Ambassador - involves promoting shows using material provided in an area of your choice. This role can include marketing by e-mail, telephone or face to face in towns, organisations and clubs.
We can offer you the following:
- The opportunity of working in the arts
- Networking with arts professionals
- Make new friends
- A regular newsletter
- A friendly supportive environment
- Give something back to your community
- Be a part of our history
We need people with a pleasant manner, enthusiasm, a willingness to follow instruction and plenty of commitment.
