Each season, more than 600 volunteers from the Dayton area donate more than 60,000 hours of their time to our organization.


Volunteers work as ticket scanners, ushers and bartenders at the Victoria Theatre, Schuster Center, and The Loft Theatre. Ushers are responsible for seating patrons, enforcing house policies, assisting patrons, and answering questions. They may also assist with mailings, staff fair and festival booths, and other tasks.

Thank you for your interest! We are not accepting new volunteers at this time. Please fill out the application at the link below and your information will be kept on file. 

Volunteers are expected to attend an orientation, training sessions, and commit to working a minimum of 50 hours per year. 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!
