During the Run of a Production/Event
Backstage & Tech

Welcome (or welcome back!) to Dover Little Theatre’s Volunteer Corps. If you appreciate theatre (and we know you do =]) then you understand that providing a quality experience takes the efforts of not only those on the stage, but off- and behind it as well! Thank you for your contribution!  

Our focus for 2017 is to provide a welcoming, pleasant evening or afternoon for our patrons from the moment they step in to our little gem. To ensure this, we’re providing the following expectations and duties in the interests of consistency and professionalism:

Volunteer Expectations include:
-Please arrive no later than 45 minutes before curtain. This way, the concession stands is ready to go for those early birds!
-You are expected to stay for the duration of the show unless otherwise arranged.
-Dress for your level of comfort, but please, no faded jeans, t-shirts or sweatshirts.
-Please mutually agree upon the division of duties with other volunteers so that all tasks are covered.
-Please refrain from texting while patrons are in the lobby.
-Please sit on the side of the house near the curtain so that it can be opened promptly at intermission. Please follow

Volunteer Duties include:
-Setting up, breaking down and manning the concession stand.
-Welcoming, taking tickets from, and handing out programs to patrons.
-Closing and opening the curtain at the appropriate times.
-Checking the bathrooms for adequate supplies of paper products. Replace if needed.

Once again, thank you for generously giving of your time to Dover Little Theatre!
