Become a Volunteer (Ambassador)

At the Gravenhurst Opera House we are always looking for volunteers to become ambassadors of what we do. We would not be able to deliver our programs and serve our community without the kindness and generosity of those who share their valuable time. If you are 16 years of age or older, looking to meet new friends, give back to the community, see inspiring shows or build your resume, then volunteer with us – especially if you enjoy the performing arts!

There is no minimum amount of time volunteers are required to give, but every hour is appreciated. We are currently seeking volunteers to usher and take tickets during performances. Ushers assist patrons to their seats and ensure that house rules are followed. Ticket takers welcome and direct patrons and answer any questions they may have. We also encourage friends and family members to volunteer together!

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer ambassador, please print and fill out our volunteer application.

OH! And if you are a high-school student, 16 years or older, you can earn community hours for your volunteer work.

All applicants will be contacted promptly. Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us!

Check out our dates for upcoming events for volunteer opportunities.
