Palace volunteer advisory committee members will meet with potential Palace volunteers during an orientation session. The Palace hopes to build a volunteer corps with people ranging from juniors in high school to retirees that wish to give back to the community.
The volunteers are growing as an organization, and to help facilitate that growth, those attending the orientation will receive an updated volunteer handbook and a signup sheet for volunteering at upcoming events. This training session will last approximately one hour and cover the various ways volunteers can lend a helping hand. The topics to be covered are dress code, procedures, and how individuals sign up to help at the Theatre.
There is a large list of positions available when considering volunteering at the Palace. The jobs at the Palace include, but are not limited to:
- Kiosk ticket sales agent
- Program and Survey passer
- Performance usher
- Backstage crew
- Movie projectionist
- Concession stand worker
- Deliver posters, table-tents, and other marketing materials to local businesses
- Hospitality associate and more
Volunteers are able to match interests and talents and spend as little or as much time as they would like helping out.
Volunteering at the Palace benefits not only the Theatre but also those giving of their time and efforts. Many area high schools require community service hours for graduation. Community involvement plays a significant role in college and employment applications. It also serves as a social tool for networking and even making new friends. However, all volunteers agree one of the greatest perks while serving the Marion Palace Theatre is being able to enjoy any of the fabulous shows for free!
For those who cannot make this meeting, future orientations will occur at least once per quarter so that everyone who wants to be a part of the Palace gets the opportunity to serve. Interested participants and those with questions are asked to contact Palace Volunteer Coordinator Brea Turner by phone at (740) 383-2101 to reserve a space for this orientation.
