An exciting and entertaining destination...this is PlayhouseSquare!

THANK YOU RedCoat Volunteers!

Published April 11th, 2017 by | Comments Off on THANK YOU RedCoat Volunteers!

In honor of April being National Volunteer Month, we want to take the time to celebrate the work that our RedCoat volunteers do year-round, and share some fun facts about our program. Enjoy!

1. The Playhouse Square RedCoat volunteer program officially began in 1980.

2. RedCoats wear many hats here! They serve as greeters, ticket scanners, tour guides, ushers, wheelchair escorts AND provide assistance in the Playhouse Square administrative offices.

3. They are the face the of Playhouse Square to nearly one million guests who annually attend more than one thousand curtains!

4. Some RedCoats, known as the “Bright Spots,” clean and polish the beautiful chandeliers. And others play the 1928 Kimball Organ in the Connor Palace prior to Cinema at the Square screenings and on other special occasions.

5. High school students serve as volunteer ushers, as well, in a special program known as STARS – Students Take A Role at the Square. (for more information about this program click here.)

6. More than 1300 RedCoats annually provide MORE THAN 100,000 hours of service to Playhouse Square!

We are proud to say that our RedCoats show their passion and support of our not-for-profit mission, in addition to the performing arts, every time they enter the door, and we are beyond grateful for the time and talents they are willing to pledge to us. RedCoats, you rock!

We are always welcoming new RedCoats! Interested in becoming a volunteer? Find out more HERE.
