Volunteers play a crucial role within the Newcastle Playhouse and we are thankful for their time, commitment and energy.
Assisting with a range of activities, volunteers (volly's) get to experience the buzz of seeing live performances including theatre, music, comedy, musicals and more, while engaging with and making a significant contribution to the vibrant, dynamic creative arts scene in Newcastle. Our volunteers help with

  • Ushering patrons to seats
  • Supporting the Front of House Manager
  • Evacuation procedures
  • Crowd control/audience movement
  • Marketing our venue through positive engagement with ticket holders

No experience is required, however volunteers are requested to assist with a minimum of 6 shifts per calendar year. If you love the performing arts, engaging with patrons and are looking for a volunteer role that often takes place of an evening, please complete our online volunteer enquiry form.
