Third Street Theatre is looking for volunteer ushers and box office volunteers for its production of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play I Am My Own Wife by Doug Wright playing April 24 – May 4, 2013 at EPCOR CENTRE’s Motel.
Inspired by interviews conducted by playwright Doug Wright, I Am My Own Wife is the true story of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, born Lothar Berfeld, who, as a young boy in pre-war Berlin, wanted nothing more than to wear pretty dresses. With bravery and resilience of spirit, she did whatever it took to remain authentic to herself in an increasingly unwelcoming world. She survived some of the 20th century’s most oppressive regimes while helping to preserve queer history and turning her antique collection into a museum, of which she was its rarest artifact.
Volunteering is a great way to see the production, so please consider volunteering for one or more performances, or volunteer with a friend or family member!
We need volunteer ushers and box office for the following shows:
April 24 – 27th at 7:30pm
April 30 – May 4th at 7:30pm
Matinees at 2:00pm April 28th & May 4th
The ushers welcome patrons, hand out programs, take tickets and ensure everyone is properly seated, including late comers. Immediately following the show, ushers clear the theatre of programs and any debris. Box Office volunteer will assist in distributing and selling tickets.
Evening performances are at 7:30PM and the two Matinees are at 2:00PM. Volunteers are asked to arrive 45 minutes before the performance time.
Tickets are $20 General admission, $15 seniors and students and can be reserved at [email protected] Tickets are cash only at the door so encourage your friends and family to reserve their tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.
