Reports to: Box Office Manager
The right candidate works confidently under pressure and has a good mixture of creative-problem-solving and detail-orientedness. The job is logistical in nature but, as is common in theatre, we must solve problems as they arise with the resources we have.
Front of House experience and Box Office experience is helpful, but not required. Any amount of customer service/management experience can serve as a good background for this job. Good communication, computer, and people skills are essential. Performing arts experience is an asset, but not a requirement. Approximately 10-20 hours/week. Must work weekends. Flexible schedule.
A successful applicant will embrace the Lyric Stage’s Anti-Racism and Inclusion plan, represent our values and code of conduct, and create positive respectful experiences for others.
Special note: This is a great job for young artists who are starting out or beginning a freelancing journey. Our staff generally falls somewhere in that realm and enjoy discussing and supporting one another’s early careers.
