Volunteer Opportunities

Organization: Odyssey Theatre
Odyssey Theatre is celebrating its 34th season as Ottawa’s premier professional open-air theatre. Our annual Theatre Under the Stars series transforms Ottawa’s beautiful Strathcona Park into a theatre venue and welcomes theatre lovers of all ages.

We are looking for dedicated and enthusiastic people from diverse backgrounds who have a passion for the arts and are willing to work outdoors during the run of our summer production "The Bonds of Interest". Come join a dynamic and collaborative team, work alongside professional artists and spend some time with Ottawa’s leading mask and movement theatre company!

FOH volunteers are the patron’s first impression of the company, and play an important role in ensuring a satisfying experience for our guests. FOH volunteers are charged with essential tasks, including working concessions, box office, ushering, general set-up, and customer service.

Performances take place between July 25th and August 25th, Tuesday through Sunday evenings, and Sunday afternoons. Shifts are in 4-hour increments: evenings from 6:30pm to 10:30pm, afternoons from 12:30 to 4:30pm. We would also welcome volunteers who are interested in helping us on Park set up day on July 13 and Strike day on August 27.

We ask volunteers for a minimum of 4 guaranteed shifts – however, we are flexible, so any help is welcome. Those who complete four shifts can receive a complimentary ticket to the show! (Pending availability)

Bring your spirit, enthusiasm, and passion for the arts to help a great team bring outdoor theatre to Ottawa audiences!

We are especially looking for volunteers with a knowledge of American Sign Language!

For those interested, please call Odyssey's office at 613-232-8407 or email Madeleine at office@odysseytheatre.ca
