“I love the camaraderie shared by not only the staff and volunteers, but by the artists and patrons, as well.  All like minded individuals who enjoy being involved with and supporting community theatre and the incredible artists in NL. I have always loved the theatre and have been a regular patron of the LSPU Hall for many, many years.  Volunteering there was the next step.  I volunteer, but am still a very active patron.”

“Volunteering at the LSPU has literally opened the door for me to the art of stagecraft. Watching the diverse offerings from the front row and connecting with actors and production crew lets me into the world of theatre on a personal level. While I’ve been learning how to write a play, I can hear from the author’s mouth how they developed their own work. My favourite was the Q&A session with the author/lead of Muskrat Dreams.”

“What I enjoy most is feeling like I’m part of the wonderful community that is the Hall. (Also, making new friends and seeing old ones. Also, seeing shows for free. Honest, I don’t know why everyone doesn’t volunteer for The Hall!) I’ve volunteered with theatre for literally decades in various places and forms. The Hall is such an important part of St. John’s culture, with so much going on, that I quite honestly didn’t think twice when I was first approached. It’s great to feel a part (even a small part) of making wonderful things happen.”

“Volunteering at the hall has been fantastic. I’ve seen breathtaking, heart wrenching, and hilarious shows that I might not have otherwise. I’ve met a community of warm and talented people who inspire and welcome me, and I also feel like I’m doing something good: helping support local theatre. I’ve been encouraging anyone I know who likes the theatre to volunteer, it’s such a rewarding experience.”

“I am retired and no spring chicken but I find volunteering at the Hall and being around such young, energetic people is like a breath of fresh air. Thank you so much for the volunteering opportunity.”

“I’ve been a volunteer at the LSPU Hall for about 2 years now and it’s been a wonderful experience. All of the people there are great to work with, very helpful, and you always feel like you are part of a team!  I’ve learned a lot about customer service, theatre operation, and I get to enjoy the great shows there!”

“Being a volunteer at LSPU over the years has offered me the chance to meet some lovely like-minded folks who share an appreciation for the arts. Great friendships & lovely neighbours have budded from my time at the hall.”

“I am an active volunteer in the city in many different aspects & have found my experience at the LSPU hall for over 12 years to be very positive and rewarding. The staff & other volunteers treat me with respect and appreciation and being able to pick the dates & events makes the time there very enjoyable. The hall is my favorite venue to attend any productions and I am very happy it is part of our arts community.”

“Volunteering at the LSPU has provided me an opportunity to meet the most amazing people I might not otherwise have met. It’s rewarding to help RCA, in a small way, bring quality entertainment and shows to fruition.”

“The Hall is great. It has spawned so much talent since its opening. I have lived and worked in the arts all my life. My volunteer efforts in my life have to go to something I respect. Its multi-disciplinary programs and performances  and strong professional  theatre have played a special dynamic in the community and which I have enjoyed all my life. The staff are great , the volunteers are great. New friendships happen. I love the theatre.”
