Front Of House volunteers needed

Now that rehearsals are under way for our next show, which will run from the 7th to the 9th of July at the Compass Theatre in Ickenham, the committee and production team have begun to think about the practicalities of staging a show in a theatre.

One thing that is absolutely essential is a team of volunteers to help out Front Of House (in the foyer and auditorium).

We need a Front of House manager, ideally for all three nights, plus three extra people for each of the three performances. The volunteers will need to be reasonably able-bodied, since they will need to help guide people towards the exits in the event of an emergency (very rare, but we need to be prepared, just in case).

No previous experience is required, as Compass staff give all necessary training at the beginning of the evening.

Front of House volunteers would usually get to see most, if not all, of the show without needing to buy a ticket. However, there must be one member of the team in the Foyer at all times, and this person won’t be able to see the show. It is usual for volunteers to swap over during the interval, or else for someone to volunteer for more than one show, so they get to watch on at least one night.

If you would like to volunteer, or know anyone you can press-gang persuade to volunteer, then please talk to Mike during one of the rehearsals, or drop us a line by email.

The show cannot “go up” (i.e. start) unless all the front of house team are present, so please only volunteer if you are sure you’ll be able to make it (barring exceptional circumstances, of course).
