Volunteers must be able to stand for several hours and climb stairs without difficulty, as assigned positions rotate throughout the season.

Volunteers must be at least 15 years of age and have excellent verbal and interpersonal skills. The hours of volunteer work vary depending on the performance, but each shift requires a minimum four-hour time commitment on average. Every volunteer is required to work a minimum of ten shows per calendar year.
