Volunteer Call for 'Rabbit Hole' House Teams

Posted: Wednesday, March 8, 2017, 4:14am

Rabbit Hole opens its run Friday March 24 at the 5691 Harlem Road playhouse, and the call is sounding to assemble volunteers to be house managers, ushers, parking lot attendants, and concession clerks for eight performances continuing through Sunday April 9.

Curtain Players presents Rabbit Hole at 8 PM Fridays-Saturdays March 24-25, 31-April 1 and 7-8 and at 2 PM Sundays April 2 and 9. A Curtain Panels audience talk back follows the Sunday April 2 performance.

NOTE: The theatre company advises potential volunteers that this production is recommended for audiences ages 13 and older because of adult language.

Questions about the volunteer program and may sign up for Rabbit Hole house staff positions by e-mailing volunteer coordinator Lindsay Brooks at volunteer@curtainplayers.org

House staff must be 18 years of age or over, with the exception of ushers, who may be as young as 16 years of age.

The house staff jobs are important ones, as these volunteers have the responsibility to be hosts to patrons and to be caretakers of the theatre at performances from before the house opens, during the performance and intermission, and until the theatre closes for the night. Volunteers should note that recent productions at the playhouse have been near or completely sold out.

Curtain Players provides job descriptions to volunteers ahead of time. Curtain Players also encourages those who have worked in these positions to return and to be guides for new volunteers, thereby building the theatre’s network of experienced volunteers. As a thank you, Curtain Players invites members of its house staff to stay for the performance without charge.
