Seeking Volunteers to operate Captions for Live Theatre!

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: PORTLAND PLAYHOUSE

We are seeking volunteers to run captions for our production of Passing Strange!

To sign up for a timeslot, please email Voni Kengla at voni@portlandplayhouse.org

Our captions volunteer will have a seat in the house to watch the show while they operate a computer to change the supertitles on the stage as the show progresses. With just the simple click of a button, you'll be providing accessibility for all our audience members! Did we mention you'll get to see the show for free??

About Passing Strange:

Set against the backdrop of the 1970s and 80s, the story takes you on a wild ride from the gospel churches of South Central LA to the punk rock clubs of Amsterdam and Berlin - sex, drugs and rock 'n’ roll anyone? Filled with electrifying rock music, soulful ballads, and powerful storytelling, Passing Strange is a triumph of live theater.

Mission Statement

Portland Playhouse is a non-profit performing arts theatre dedicated to producing quality, intimate performances in which the interaction between artists and audience is paramount. We hold theatre to be a space in which people of all social, economic, racial, sexual and political backgrounds can come together to celebrate the complexity of our shared human experience.

Description

The Portland Playhouse is currently seeking Front of House volunteers. Positions include: concessionaire (selling snacks and popcorn), beer-tender (OLCC card not necessary, as beer is free and donated), usher, outdoor greeter, and raffle ticket seller. Shifts entail working 1 hr before the show, 20 mins at intermission, and 15 mins post-show to clean theatre. All volunteers receive a complimentary ticket to the show. (Note: If the show is sold-out during the night of your volunteer shift, your ticket may be bumped to another night choosing, though we do try our best to avoid this).
