New for Volunteers!

It’s now easier and more fun than ever to volunteer at Lyric Arts:

  • 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.

  • Concessions restocking procedures are much quicker and easier.

  • At most performances (subject to availablility), 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)
