As the Lutcher Theater prepares for their 2013-2014, “Red Hot” Season, the Lutcher Service Guild is seeking individuals interested in volunteering their time and talents to help promote and support the Lutcher Theater and the arts in our community.

This season’s membership drive is to be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 18, on the Lutcher Theater third floor lobby. The drive is open to the public and all are invited for cake and ice cream and information about committees and membership requirements.

The Service Guild is a non-profit organization whose main objective is to support the Lutcher Theater’s performing arts series.  Annually the theater provides entertainment to approximately 30,000 adults and children and the Guild helps to facilitate Lutcher events in a variety of ways.

Persons interested in volunteering can choose to be involved with one or more committees, which represent the different aspects of the theater’s needs. Volunteer opportunities include the following committees.

Patron Services: includes ushering, scanning and counting tickets, attending concessions and coatroom, and assisting with hearing devices and binocular rentals.

Hospitality: includes catering and providing “Home Town” hospitality for national and international touring company members, and technical crews. The Lutcher Theater has earned a national/international reputation as “the place where artists look forward to home cooking when on the road.”

Sets, Lights, Audio and Props: includes assisting backstage with the technical aspects of a show, such as loading in, lighting, sound, props and wardrobe for most daytime children’s shows.

Administration: includes packaging season tickets, mailing material relating to board meetings, general membership meetings, and invitations to special events such as the Guild’s Christmas Dinner and Officer Installation Dinner.

Audience Development: includes distributing materials such as posters and flyers throughout the Golden Triangle promoting the theater events to the public.

Membership: includes organizing and conducting the annual membership drive, collecting dues and maintaining a current membership roster for the Guild.

Annual dues for members are $10.00 and are used to support guild activities.
