Volunteer Opportunities



Volunteer Opportunities

Proctors is grateful for the efforts of over 1,000 volunteers who have been critical to its success. Many have volunteered for over twenty years. Because of the growth of program, we are continuously recruiting new volunteers and welcome your interest.

Assist patrons with seating, distribute programs and provide assistance to patrons during daytime and/or evening performances. All new ushers must be able to work throughout the theatre comfortably. This includes being able to climb to the top of the balcony. As one of the responsibilities of the ushers is to assist with the evacuation of the building in the event of an emergency, this is not a good position for anyone with physical limitations.

Set up and serve beverages to customers prior to performances and during intermission. Accept cash from Patrons and make change. Beverages served include beer, wine, soft drinks and water. There is no mixing of drinks required. There is carrying involved. This is not a good position for anyone with physical limitations.

Sell candy and soda prior to performances and at intermission.

Assist with sales during intermission and before and after performances, during winter Schenectady GreenMarket and additional hours we are open to the public. In addition to ringing up cashless sales on electronic registers, they greet and answer patron questions and perform light housekeeping tasks within the store.

Greet and serve complimentary beverages in the VIP Lounge.
