Be a Volunteer

It takes more than money to keep The Strand running as North Pittsburgh’s Premiere Performing Arts, Education, and Community Outreach Center. It takes the involvement, expertise and commitment of cultural, historic and civic-minded individuals and groups.

The Strand Theater Initiative has many volunteer opportunities. In fact, nearly 100% of all theater operations are handed by Volunteer service, from Concessions to Box Office to Ushering and House Management to special events, fundraising and repair & maintenance. If you have a background or an interest in any of these areas, please contact us by calling 724-742-0400 or sending us an e-mail at

Volunteer opportunities:

  • Theater Operations (Box Office, Concessions, Ushering)

There are no minimum hours required to become a Strand Volunteer. The only requirements we have are the willingness to work both film and live programs, and the willingness to work the various positions that are available (Concessions, Box Office, Usher, etc.).

Whether your interest lies in historic preservation, cultural growth or economic development, or you just have a sentimental attachment to The Strand, The Strand Theater Initiative welcomes you. We have a continuing need for fresh faces and new ideas. Join The Initiative!
