Portland Center Stage at The Armory’s mission is to inspire our community by bringing stories to life in unexpected ways. We need your help in bringing these stories to life for our community. We’re looking for friendly, outgoing and reliable volunteers to work with us in a variety of areas. If you love the arts and want to support great theater, we want to hear from you!
Benefits to volunteering at The Armory:
- Invitations to attend some dress rehearsals for free.
- Experience working side-by-side with theater professionals.
- Access to special events and workshops.
- Student volunteers may be able to earn high school or college credit.
- Potential for your workplace to provide matching grants to The Armory based on your volunteer hours.
We understand that life is busy. That's why we offer a variety of opportunities that allow you to volunteer on a schedule that works for you.
Usher recruitment for 2018-2019 is now closed. We accept applications on a year round basis and will be contacting all qualified applicants late summer of 2019 to schedule training sessions for the 2019-2020 season.
Ushers are the face of Portland Center Stage at The Armory during performances. As an usher, you will be part of the team that ensures that every patron has a great experience, and watch the performance for free! Ushers are responsible for scanning tickets, helping patrons find their assigned seats, and handing out complimentary programs.
Office assistants provide clerical support for the staff, such as data entry, bulk mail preparation and other administrative projects as needed.
Entertainers provide food and beverages for the cast, crew, and staff at two separate events for most productions: afternoon snacks at the “Meet and Greet” on the first day of rehearsal and a “Tech Dinner” prior to the evening dress rehearsal. Provide the cast and crew with a great meal and get an opportunity to meet our amazing artists.
This volunteer group transports guest artists and designers to and from the airport, train station, local schools, and other destinations as needed.
The Armory Ambassadors are docent tour guides who lead scheduled tours of The Armory.
