Huron Country Playhouse Recruiting Adult Volunteers for Expanded Theatre Season

Applications for Adult Volunteers are now being accepted for the 2018 theatre season at the Huron Country Playhouse in Grand Bend. Due to record attendance last year and increasing tourism in the area, the season is extended into the fall shoulder with the Canadian premiere of Irving Berlin’s blockbuster musical Holiday Inn on stage from September 13 to 30.

With 9 productions on stage from June to the end of September, the burgeoning theatre will require more helping hands to assist the thousands of theatregoers that will attend more than 200 performances over the course of the summer and early fall.

“We’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers who would like to donate their time and energy to provide a positive and enriching experience for everyone who visits the theatre in Grand Bend,” says Alex Mustakas, Artistic Director of Drayton Entertainment.

Do you have a passion for theatre? If so, becoming a volunteer at the Huron Country Playhouse is a fantastic opportunity to learn what it’s like to work behind‐the‐scenes, while helping others to discover the incredible experience of attending a live performance. Whether you’re retired and looking for interesting social activities that can also help others, or looking to expand the customer service experience on your résumé, volunteering at the theatre is a rewarding activity that allows you to make a positive contribution to your community. As a not‐for‐profit, registered charitable organization, Drayton Entertainment relies on a strong volunteer base.

Adult volunteers do a variety of tasks including acting as ambassadors for the theatre by ushering at performances – duties include tearing tickets, handing out programs, selling raffle and 50/50 tickets and leading patrons to their seats. They may also assist with special events or help spread the word about upcoming shows through local distribution of promotional materials.

Volunteer Information Sessions will take place in the lobby at the Huron Country Playhouse on Monday, May 14 at 2:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. To register for a session, or for more information, please contact Catherine Shaver, Volunteer Coordinator at (519) 621‐ 5511 ext. 264 or email catherine@draytonentertainment.com
