Become an OPAS Volunteer

The MSC OPAS Volunteer Corps was created especially for Brazos Valley residents with a passion for the performing arts! A variety of volunteer opportunities are available on performance nights in areas like ushering, ticket scanning, special services, and program distribution.

About Volunteering

There are two simple keys to performing the duties of a volunteer. The first is to be physically able to complete all tasks required. Our volunteers may stand for long periods of time or may need to assist a patron in an emergency. And as you will see when you attend the training, we do a substantial amount of walking up and down stairs. It is vitally important for all volunteers to be physically prepared to perform all aspects of their assignments. The second key is a positive attitude! Simple! The volunteers are the face of OPAS and play a vital role in a patron's experience. We must be courteous and polite to all patrons under any and all circumstances

Traits required for all volunteers of OPAS include:

•  At least 18 years of age
•  Special interest and enthusiasm for the performing arts
•  Demonstrates and enforces appropriate performance protocol
•  Has a serious willingness to serve all patrons of the Rudder Theatre complex with care and respect
•  Displays a high level of congeniality in greeting and seating performance guests
•  Reflects a professional demeanor in the execution of all volunteer responsibilities
