Front of House Volunteers

Front of House volunteers are some of the most important people at Quincy Community Theatre. This friendly and professional group is the welcoming face of QCT on show nights, helping patrons to their seats, welcoming them at the door, and selling tickets at the Box Office.

No matter which Front of House operation you choose, you’ll have a vital role in creating an unforgettable and positive experience for all QCT patrons.
