Volunteers are the pillar that holds up the heart of The Ritz Theatre Company. Whether ushering our shows, selling 50/50s and concessions, painting sets, sending out mailings, planning parties, or serving on our Board, our dedicated volunteers—of all ages and from all backgrounds—truly make The Ritz go ‘round.

And, of course, there are special benefits to volunteering, such as invitations to special events and programs and complimentary tickets in exchange for certain tasks.

Also: volunteering at The Ritz fulfills the service requirement for local high school students.

Have some time to spare? You could…

…Join Friends of the Ritz

Friends is the theatre’s official volunteer wing who give their time and talents to support The Ritz Theatre Company. Operating the concession stand, running the 50/50, hanging posters in local towns, organizing fundraisers, and planning opening night parties and special events are some of the many activities they are involved in throughout the season. If you’re looking for a hands-on way to support the arts (and meet some cool people), please call 856-858-5230, search for Friends of the Ritz on Facebook, or email Acting Friends President Maggie Jenkins [link to magpie87@comcast.net]

…Usher

One of our more popular volunteer opportunities is ushering at The Ritz. Ushers are needed for our mainstage productions and special events. Duties include collecting tickets and seating patrons in the theatre. If you are interested in ushering, please call 856-858-5230 or email [link to sales@ritztheatreco.org]
