Front of House Volunteer Roster at the RONDO
Please read information below . . .
Thank you for volunteering for Front of House (FoH) with the Cairns Little Theatre (CLT) - located in The Rondo Theatre, Greenslopes Street, Edge Hill.
Please READ the information below and email (or text) the contact at the bottom of this page if anything needs clarification.
If you previously volunteered during 2019, and have current 2020 membership, please scroll down to the roster and choose two or three different jobs during the run of the play - and complete the online form. A reminder text will be sent a couple of days before your shifts.
If you're new to Rondo volunteering, being a 'trainee' for one or two nights during the run of a ‘Season’ production, is the best thing you can do to start your theatre experience. Following that ‘training’ shift, you can choose to sign-up for any of the other spots if you have CLT Club membership ($20/yr). Doing a 'trainee' session is also a great way to have a refresher if you've been off line for a while.
While being a trainee you will ‘shadows’ the Box Office role and get information about being an Usher and also about staying through the play in the Hot Seat role. We ask all volunteers to give at least two nights during the run of a season play, and in two different roles.
Your second night could again be as trainee (watching/working with someone else) or as an Usher only. You need to have done a trainee night and be a current CLT member ($20/yr) to perform the Hot Seat role.
A season play usually runs from the opening Friday night (8pm start) until the Saturday of the following weekend (excluding Sunday) – 8 performance nights.
That gives you 8 performances to volunteer on nights of your choice.
Approx times: Box Office & Trainee - 6.45 - 9.45
Hot Seat 7.30 - 10.30
Usher 7.30 - 8.00
If there is a ‘Fringe’ Production happening on the weekend (Thur-Sat) following the conclusion of the ‘Season’ play, you can be involved with FoH then too.
During Fringe plays, the Box Office operates with all tickets one price and purchased at the door with Tea/Coffee available if there is an interval. Seating is unallocated, so only the two Hot Seaters are required to collect tickets and to otherwise carry out their usual tasks.
Once your email address has been added to FoH contacts, you will be sent an email telling you when a new roster is up and ready to take names.
