University of Missouri - St. Louis-- Touhill Performing Arts Center

  • 3 people are interested

The Touhill Performing Arts Center is looking to recruit volunteers to help out during our season. Volunteers will act as ticket scanners, ushers and greeters during our events.
How it works

Volunteers choose the performance opportunities that interest them. The Touhill’s volunteer
coordinator then confirms availability, then, on the day of the show, assigns posts. Normally, our
volunteers get to see the majority of the performance!

We ask that volunteers commit to about 6 events per half year to remain in active status as a
member. Events last just around five hours from call time to dismissal.

Major perks!
  • Experience Touhill performances with two complimentary tickets per volunteer each year. Enjoy a show on us!
  • Recognition prizes for hours of service over the minimum requirement.
  • Parties, events, and social gatherings, just for the volunteers.

1 Shift

  • 05:00 PM to 10:00 PM
    We have a variety of events that take place, shifts will vary based on the needs of the show. Most will likely fall within the above range.
  • NONE OF THESE TIMES WORK FOR ME, BUT I CAN STILL HELP
