New for Volunteers!

It’s now easier and more fun than ever to volunteer at Lyric Arts.  Starting with the 2016-17 season:

  • Volunteers who sign up ahead of time for a Concessions or Wine Bar shift will be on the guest list for the PREVIEW of that show.
  • Water, pop and beer for restocking are now located in Concessions and the Wine Bar (no more trips to the pop closet!)
  • At most performances, there are now reserved seats in Row I, in addition to the stools, to make sure volunteers can sit and watch the show during their shift.
  • Volunteers who donate at least 50 hours of their time in a season are eligible for a free pair of tickets to the show of their choice! (subject to availability, section B, not valid for concerts or special events, good for one year from date of issue)
