Be Part of Town Hall Theatre!

Town Hall 1873 is home to Town Hall Theatre and is a registered Canadian charity that relies on volunteers who share our passion for theatre and community building. Our volunteers use their talents in a variety of ways to help make our work possible.

Volunteering is a great way to contribute while meeting like-minded people from the community, learning new skills, often seeing concerts and award-winning productions for free, and becoming involved with the local arts scene.  We offer volunteer opportunities in many areas, including assisting with special events and fundraisers, ushering and front of house, assisting with Covid-19 safety protocols, and helping in a variety of ways with special projects.

No previous experience is necessary.  We are looking for volunteers with an interest and passion for the arts and the local community.  Our volunteers are reliable and committed, possess a positive attitude and are friendly, courteous, and respectful with our patrons.  In return, volunteers receive a range of perks, including being able to enjoy concerts and live theatre for free (most times), appreciation events, and more.

Don’t worry – scheduling is flexible, so you can participate according to your availability!
