Volunteer Positions

San Francisco Performances is looking for dedicated volunteers to work on administrative tasks and usher at select performances. Duties in each of the areas include, but are not limited, to the following:

Administrative Assistance
Presenting performances requires an enormous amount of behind-the-scenes work. Without the help of administrative volunteers, San Francisco Performances would not be able to present such an extensive season. We are looking for on-call volunteers to help with such activities as mailings, internet research, filing, organizational assistance and data entry.

Performance Help
San Francisco Performances wants to ensure that performances are enjoyable and stress-free for all audience members. In order to do so, we rely on the help of informed and friendly ushers. Usher’s duties would include ticket-taking, seat assistance, handing out programs, collecting and passing out surveys, and sometimes assisting with post-performance events (guest check-in, pouring champagne, washing glasses, cleaning up, etc.).

Special Event Aide
We are looking for volunteers on an as-needed basis to help out at special programs throughout the year. Events may include educational and community events as well as our annual gala. Tasks and times vary greatly depending on the event.

In return for their valuable help, volunteers are given tickets to select performances and recognized in other ways throughout the year.

If you are interested in volunteering in one or more of these areas, please return a completed registration form, or contact the Education Department at (415) 677-0331 or
