SEE FREE THEATER!

If you're looking for a way to support amazing theater in Philadelphia, why not become a volunteer and see shows for free?   The Wilma Theater is looking for some professional and enthusiastic volunteers to help us give our patrons the best theater experience ever.  We have available spots for our main production season and also for other companies that perform at the Wilma, such as BalletX.

Volunteers are required to arrive an hour and a half prior to curtain time and must be able to stay through the end of the performance.  Volunteers help out with various duties, including taking tickets, assisting patrons in finding their seats, checking coats, and stuffing playbills.  Dedicated volunteers may be invited to help with special events, such as opening nights and gala parties!

Please note that registration occurs on a first-come, first-served basis and some performances fill up quickly!

If you are interested in signing up to be a volunteer at the Wilma, please email volunteers@wilmatheater.org, and include your name, phone number, address, and email so we may contact you and the dates you are interested in volunteering.  Please remember that some performances have already been booked, so be sure to give us at least two alternate dates if you have not already received confirmation!

Basic Info:
Volunteers meet the House Manager before showtime to get their duty assignments and pre-show projects.  Wilma volunteers wear all black when working, and will be given a name tag noting their status as representatives of The Wilma Theater.  After the patrons have seated, volunteers can either take a seat in the house as indicated by the House Manager to watch the show, or can relax in the lobby with a complimentary cup of coffee or tea until intermission.  After the show, volunteers collect discarded programs, and check the house for trash and lost articles.
