Becoming a volunteer is a great way to help support Pittsburgh Public Theater and, in return, get a chance to see productions for free! We depend on volunteers to ensure that our patrons have a great experience from the moment they walk through the theater doors. New volunteer opportunities are now available for the 2023-2024 season.

Volunteer Commitment

By participating in the Volunteer Program at Pittsburgh Public Theater, you are committing to volunteer on five dates throughout the season — once for each of our five regular-season productions — on a schedule determined prior to the start of each season, which generally runs from September through June.

We ask that any prospective volunteers review the Volunteer Program Handbook before making a commitment to the program, so you are aware of all expectations. This document includes important details on the program, including minimum time commitment, attendance policy, dress code, parking and transportation options, service and conduct expectations, and more. You can also check out the Volunteer Front of House FAQ’s for commonly asked questions regarding our new volunteer opportunities.

Next Steps

If you are ready to volunteer, please fill out our online interest form to provide more details. We will contact you regarding availability and scheduling once the form is submitted. If we are at capacity at the time of your submission, we will add you to our waitlist for future opportunities.

If you have any questions not covered in the Volunteer Program Handbook or Volunteer Front of House FAQ’s, please contact House Manager Jamie Dawson at jdawson@PPT.org.  Thank you for your interest in the Volunteer Program, and we hope to see you soon at Pittsburgh Public Theater!
