Becoming a volunteer

If you are fit, cheerful, over 16 years of age, and looking to widen your world view, volunteering at the Regent Theatre could be an avenue to investigate. We are always on the lookout for people who enjoy the company of people from all walks of life to fill a variety of roles.

There are usually about 160 people on the volunteer schedule, all of whom enjoy being part of the behind the scenes life of the theatre and chatting to patrons.

Front of house volunteers usher patrons to seats, offer directions to restrooms or transport services and general information, work in the theatre’s several bars and look after event merchandise sales.

There are also volunteers who primarily swing into action before and during the Theatre’s annual 24-Hour Book Sale, helping to sort and then sell the donated items.
