Volunteer at Unexpected Productions

By September 26, 2018The Improv School

Want to add more laughter and excitement to your life?
Do you want to take a free improv class?
Would you like to meet new people and have fun?
How about seeing improv shows for free?
32 Volunteer Hours = 8 Weeks of Classes
UP Improv is looking for new volunteers to join our fun team. And, here is the kicker, you can earn free classes from your volunteer hours. For every 32 hours that you volunteer at our Box Office, you earn a free 8-week class.

It’s really easy to earn 32 hours since we have so many shows a week, Wednesday through Sunday (and, it is a lot of fun).

On top of classes, our volunteers earn:
Free Show tickets for you and your guests
Discounts on concessions
Invitations to exclusive events
“Family-priced” drinks (inexpensive)
The opportunity to work with (and get to know) the talented folks at Unexpected Productions
Bragging rights to your friends that you are hanging out at Seattle’s coolest improv theater
And all that’s in exchange for just chilling with us for a few hours

What is a typical night like?
Typically, our volunteers arrive 1 hour minutes before the show
You spend the first half hour of your shift setting up the lobby for concession and tickets sales that night…putting out snacks, setting up the ticket system, learning about the shows, making sure the theater and lobby are clean and making popcorn (and probably taking out the trash)
You’ll help sell tickets, concessions to the amazing UP audience members and, depending on what needs to be done, you can then go watch the performance until right before intermission
At intermission, you will again help sell concessions. After intermission or after the performance ends, you’ll restock the candy and sodas
There will be some light trash pick-up after the performance ends to keep our theater clean, and then you’ll be free to go
