Seeking Volunteers for “Drinking Habits”

volunteers

Friends of the Village Players,

We need volunteers for our first show of our 70th season: DRINKING HABITS, opening Friday, October 7th.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

We will need up to 5 people per show (2 for lobby/concessions, 1 for 50/50, and 2 for Box Office). No experience is necessary for most positions; we will let you know what you need to do if you volunteer. Please arrive one hour before showtime.

Show dates are October 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22 at 8pm and two Sunday matinees on October 9th and 16th at 2pm.

Take a look at the volunteer spreadsheet. Click the link to see what dates/positions have been taken and which one(s) you want. Send an email to production@thevillageplayers.com (or rich@thevillageplayers.com) with which date/position you’d like.

Here are the basic descriptions of your responsibilities should you wish to volunteer.

LOBBY/CONCESSIONS

If you’ve never volunteered before, ask anyone backstage to point you towards the stage manager (Gina). They can get you started on your first duty of preparing the coffee. Otherwise, feel free to get started on your own. The coffee should be ready by 7:30/1:30 when doors open. You will be given programs to hand out to the audience as they enter the theater.

50/50

You should be in the lobby as doors open to the public. You should actively engage with our patrons and encourage them to purchase 50/50 tickets. They, of course, have a chance to win half the pot. The other half is always appreciated and goes to very good use in helping maintain our theater. During intermission, you will do the same in the lobby and then also walk around to all the seats for one last attempt before picking the winning ticket at the end of intermission.

BOX OFFICE

You will be responsible for receiving payment and handing out tickets.

SOME OTHER TIME, MAYBE?

If you’re interested in helping out but cannot schedule anything for this show, please send an email to production@thevillageplayers.com to be put on the mailing list for future Calls for Assistance.
