The Volunteer Corps is a key element of support at every event at the Alberta Bair Theater.
The volunteers have a variety of roles – serving as ticket takers, ushers, and concessions workers, serving on the Hospitality Committee, assisting in the Ticket Office and Executive Office, and helping on special projects. This tireless group has donated thousands of hours since the ABT’s opening toward audience comfort, smooth-sailing performances, and the Theater’s overall success. Download a volunteer application.
