LuCille Tack Center for the Arts - 2024-2025 Season


"You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give." - Winston Churchill


For more than a quarter century, the Tack Center has been blessed by hundreds of smiling faces and helping hands, working together to bring the Arts to our greater community. Individuals give what they can, whether an hour or a day, sharing their talents and time.


Volunteers save the LTCA thousands of dollars every season and put a friendly, helpful face to every theatre experience for patrons and performers alike. From supporting the technical director by working behind the scenes or assisting patrons front of house, all LTCA Volunteers make a difference in the lives of others, helping create a positive image, and safe and pleasant surroundings for LTCA show attendees and entertainers.

Volunteers GIVE, but they also gain a sense of accomplishment in a job well done and the satisfaction of knowing they have contributed to our community. Their lives are richer and more meaningful for having connected with another human being in the Tack Center space. Volunteering is a win-win!

If you'd like to join our merry band of volunteers, we ask that you complete an application to help match you with an appropriate task. Knowing a current or past LTCA Volunteer is advantageous, but certainly not needed. Most volunteer opportunities require no prior knowledge, just a good attitude, willingness to learn, common sense and a smile.

These jobs are essential to the safety and enjoyment of our patrons. Ushers scan tickets, graciously seat patrons, welcome guests at the outside lobby door and offer efficient instructions in the case of an emergency. Most show take place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings or Sunday afternoons, though exceptions do occur.

Educational children's shows are scheduled during the school day. Making first-timers and regulars feel welcome, safe and comfortable is of the greatest importance. Ushers may sign-up to work as often as they wish, though "prime" jobs may be rotated by the Usher Coordinator, Lisa Susa. Time commitment ranges from 1-3 hours, depending on the assignment.

  • Keep their calendar clear of any other obligation that would interfere with an event to which they've committed to work;
  • Arrive on time to pre-show usher meeting 45 minutes before curtain time;
