- Understand and meet the physical requirements that include climbing stairs, assisting patrons to seating areas, standing for long periods of time and handing out Playbills. Volunteers work in all areas of the Fox Theatre including the main lobby, auditorium, event rooms, balcony and areas with dimly lit lighting, therefore strong eyesight is a must.

Volunteers are expected to be flexible and responsive to changes in the scope of their duties. Volunteers should exhibit a positive attitude in relation with patrons, fellow volunteers and staff.
