VOLUNTEER (Vancouver Fringe)

Tuesday, June 12, 2018 6:52 PM | GVPTA (Administrator)

The Vancouver Fringe Festival is looking forward to another exciting year of friendly faces, great theatre, and fun times with people like you, who make up our talented cast of volunteers! We foster an inclusive and diverse environment, so people from various backgrounds are welcome to join and take part in one of the best theatre festivals in town!

What is the Fringe?

The Vancouver Fringe is a celebration. Part theatre and part party, the Fringe strives to break down traditional boundaries and encourage open dialogue between audiences and artists by presenting live un-juried, uncensored theatre in an accessible and informal environment, followed by live music and special events at the Phillips Fringe Bar.

Performers collect 100% of the base ticket price, so our volunteers are the lifeblood of the Vancouver Fringe Festival! Each year, nearly 500 people from all walks of life take on volunteer roles from helping set up venues, to answering artists’ and audience members’ questions, to serving drinks at the Fringe Bar, to selling tickets, to ushering, etc. We have a very small number of permanent staff, so the Fringe couldn’t exist without volunteers like you!

Positions include: 

  • Hospitality
  • Box Office Managers
  • Bartenders
  • Production Crew
  • And much more!

Benefits can include:

  • Super Pass
  • See unlimited shows
  • Rush Pass
  • Unlimited access to non sold out shows
  • Fringe T-Shirt
  • Snacks and refreshments throughout the Festival
  • 20% off year round Fringe Presents shows
  • Access to the Volunteer Appreciation Party
  • Food, games, and prizes!

Be a part of the large and awesome Vancouver Fringe family!

Together with our members we are raising the profile of local theatre and building community.
