Become a Volunteer

The STARS Volunteers are a group of over 400 individuals, from all ages and all walks of life, who contribute over 35,000 hours annually to make each event a success. STARS provide our patrons information about the Civic Center, services, serve as ticket takers, ushers and much more. They truly are the front line of our success.

STAR Requirements

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. Depending on your assigned location on any given event, you can serve as a Ticket Taker or Usher. Ticket takers scan event tickets, hand out programs and provide basic information. Ushers work inside the theatre, helping patrons find their seats and providing assistance in emergency situations. Ushers also help enforce all theatre policies. In order to be a STAR, you must meet the following requirements.

  • Be at least 18 years old or at least 16 years old and volutneer simultaneously with a guardian who is at least 18 years old
  • Have access to phone and internet
  • Ability to work the required amount of shifts per year
  • Ability to attend required trainings
  • Completion of Kulture City online ADA training
  • Ability to attend refresher training every 2 years
