The Smith Opera House is looking for a few good volunteers. The historic theatre is hosting a volunteer recruitment night, at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 2.
From taking tickets to popping popcorn, ushering to newsletter folding, there is no shortage of rewarding volunteer challenges at the Smith Opera House. Find out what it takes to keep the 110-year-old landmark going and what you can do to help. In addition to being a valued member of The Smith team – this organization would not exist without its dedicated volunteer staff of nearly 100 people – and a sense of purpose and belonging, Smith volunteers earn passes to movies and events every time they work.
The region's only year-round performing arts venue and boasting unprecedentedly superb acoustics, The Smith hosts a variety of musical, dance, and theatrical performances for all audiences including students during school hours and families on weekends. Over forty foreign and independent films, along with Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters, are shown annually on the largest indoor silver screen in the Finger Lakes. The Smith is also host to nationally-known speakers, local graduations, class reunions, weddings and community meetings.
The Smith Opera House is located at 82 Seneca Street in Geneva. Call 315-781-LIVE or toll-free 1-866-355 LIVE, Monday – Friday, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to reserve space or for more information. Smith volunteers must be at least 16 years old.
