Volunteering at Compass Theatre

  1. Decide which of the roles below best suit you
  2. Read our Volunteer Policy carefully
  3. Register your application

...at the Compass Theatre Bar

Bar volunteers arrive an hour before an event starts  in order to set up. Our bar opens 45 minutes before the curtain goes up, and again for 15-20 minutes again at the interval. It gets very busy, very fast and there's a lot of clearing up, but with two behind the bar and a dishwasher out back, its a fun atmosphere to be in.  Bar volunteers handle cash/ card payments, stock display, have good customer service skills, are careful about hygiene and safety and can cope with a queue of waiting customers. At least 2 shifts per month are required.

...at the Box Office 

Hillingdon Box Office at Compass Theatre is operated by volunteers who take ticket bookings by phone and in-person at Compass Theatre and other venues in the borough. Full training on the booking system and Data Protection is provided before volunteers can operate alone. Box office volunteers handle cash/ card payments, have good communication skills, a friendly and approachable manner and remain calm under pressure. At least 2 shifts per month are required.

...Ushering an audience

Ushers are the welcoming face of theatres, vital for checking tickets, showing the audience to their seats and - in an emergency, assisting the Front of House Manager to evacuate the venue. Training is provided before every shift so ushers can volunteer as often as suits. Shifts begin 1 hour before a show starts and ends once the audience has left the auditorium.

...in the Wardrobe

Compass Theatre's 1st floor has a volunteer-run wardrobe department with 5 rooms containing costumes for hire. Usually open on Wednesdays (8pm to 10pm) during term-time. The department is ONLY accessible via a spiral staircase.
