Volunteers are an integral part of Kentucky Performing Arts’ team. Since opening our doors in 1983, volunteers have contributed their time and skills to create a welcoming and hospitable environment for patrons. Whether students visiting our venues for the first time on a class field trip, out-of-town visitors attending regional or national conferences, or long-time supporters of the arts, Kentucky Performing Arts volunteers set the stage for each patron’s arts experience. They are the face of Kentucky Performing Arts to patrons, the first to greet them when they arrive for an event and the last face they see as they leave. Volunteers fill a variety of roles here at Kentucky Performing Arts. These include ticket takers, ushers, greeters, tour guides, bus assistants, as well as manning our information desk and coat check, and providing important support for our administrative functions and Access Services Program. The high quality of service delivered by volunteers is a critical piece in Kentucky Performing Arts' mission to provide unparalleled programming and cultural events to the region.
The Kentucky Performing Arts Volunteer Program recognizes the variety of time commitments that some very dedicated individuals can make. Therefore, we have developed five distinct programs to meet those various needs. Each of these different programs are outlined below!
