Our usual house crew jobs during a major production include:
Floating around, making sure things are moving smoothly, helping out where needed.
During Wurstfest this includes policing outside food and beer, encouraging rowdy drunks to go elsewhere, directing those who already have tickets into the theatre, letting people know we only have so many tickets or are sold out.
Dealing with credit card machine and money, though most of our tickets are pre-sold which makes life easier.
During Wurstfest there will be more dealing with selling because there will be more walk-ins, but all tickets are one price. You will need to keep track of tickets sold in order to balance the money after the show.
Smiling, checking the date on tickets, and handing out programs.
During Wurstfest you might have to send back people with food & beer pitchers if they get by the Captain.
Selling candy, & drinks – And serving our complimentary beer and wine. No one under 18 may sign up for this position.
During Wurstfest you’ll be selling popcorn, candy, & drinks and also merchandise. – NO Beer or Wine this time so under 18 can help in this area. However, please don’t sign up a little one on a weekend. Audience members can be overwhelming if it’s too young a person behind the counter. Actually they can be that way for us older ones too!
You direct people to their seat, but do not actually take them there.
What should you wear as House Crew?
Think of dressing nice for church. Please no flip flops, shorts or t-shirts. We want to look professional.
