Each Paramount performance is a labor of love, and volunteers keep the show going! All are invited to share in the excitement of the performing arts by becoming a volunteer.

Anyone who is interested in volunteering at The Paramount — university students to seniors — is encouraged to become involved. The Paramount can use your help with a variety of volunteer opportunities, such as ushering, serving on committees, helping with artist hospitality, and assisting with mailings.

As a Paramount Volunteer, we are proud to offer you:

  • Participation in Volunteer Appreciation Events and Programs,
  • Ability to work directly with Patrons to enhance their Paramount experience,
  • Sign-up to Volunteer for events that interest you,
  • And, much more!
