We ask that all volunteers sign up for a minimum of three shows to work. Volunteers will be asked to purchase a volunteer t-shirt (required to be worn) for $15. Payment can be made online or at the volunteer orientation events. **If you purchased a 2020 shirt you do not need to purchase another one. The 2020 Volunteer Shirt will be used in 2021**

When signing up for shows, please note that most shows are 90 minutes. We have noted shows that will run longer. Volunteers are asked to arrive at least 60-90 minutes prior to the show time for training and instruction and to stay to the conclusion of the show. Specific arrival times will be provided at volunteer orientation. We will not be scheduling volunteers for back to back concerts (for example: 7:00/7:30 show and a 9:00 show or a 9:00/9:30 show and a Midnight Show). It is important that you have the opportunity to take a break between shows and travel safely. Thank you for your understanding.
