Showtime means go time at the Civic Center Music Hall, and no showtime is possible without the commitment of our invaluable volunteer STARS. Over 400 individuals, of all ages and from all walks of life, take part in our STARS program.

STARS contribute over 35,000 hours annually, providing essential services to Civic Center patrons at a wide variety of events. From welcoming guests, providing useful information about the facility and services, serving as ticket takers and ushers, and working in the concession areas, STARS stand on the front line of our success.

What do STARS do?
Our STARS perform multiple functions during show times.
Ticket Takers Ticket takers scan event tickets, hand out programs and provide basic information to patrons as they are welcomed inside the theatre.

Ushers Ushers work inside the theatre, helping patrons find their seats and providing assistance in emergency situations. Ushers also help enforce all theatre policies.

What are the requirements for working?
STARS are required to work a minimum 12 hours per quarter, (approximately 3-4) hours per shift, or on average 12 shows per year.

Depending upon individual duties during a show night, STARS may or may not miss some of that specific performance.

How Can I Get Involved?
The STARS program welcomes new volunteers throughout the year. Orientation classes are held several times per year. Individuals wishing to join the STARS program must meet the following criteria:
  • Be at least sixteen years old (must work with parent or guardian until 18 years of age);
  • Have access to the Internet;
  • Be willing to volunteer a minimum of 48 hours per year (approx. 12 shows per year upon direction of Volunteer Coordinator);
  • Be willing to work wherever assigned during a show;
  • Be willing to comply with a dress code policy;
  • Be personable, friendly and have a welcoming, helpful demeanor;
  • Have an enthusiastic spirit for the Performing Arts;
All volunteers are required to attend a 2-hour orientation prior to working any event, plus an annual Emergency Preparedness Training.

How often would I be required to work?
On average, STARS work 1-2 events per month, depending on the season. Not all shows are stage productions, so STARS are often called upon to assist a variety of functions, including entertainment shows, graduations, speeches and seminars. 

What are the benefits of becoming a STAR?
In addition to the opportunity to attend a broad variety of Civic Center events, STARS also receive the STARS newsletter, along with an invitation to the annual volunteer recognition event.
