Front of House Volunteers

Front of House volunteers are a vital part of Quincy Community Theatre. Ushers, scanners, and box offices serve as ambassadors for the theatre and can often be the first contact our patrons have with the theatre. As a volunteer, you have a vital role in creating an unforgettable and positive experience for all QCT patrons.
