Friends of W!LD RICE: BEAUTY & THE BEAST seeks Front-Of-House Volunteers!

I’d like to say I cut my teeth volunteering for W!ld Rice, but unfortunately, the truth ain’t so spectacular. I did use to volunteer previously when I was in junior college/high school because I wanted to chalk-up Community Service hours (did not particularly like going to homes for the aged) and preferred to do something I enjoyed.

The perks? Getting to watch really good shows for free (think Animal Farm).

So go for it if you haven’t tried it before – it’ll definitely be worth your while.


Dear Theatre Volunteers,

We are looking for volunteers to assist at the FRONT-OF-HOUSE (FOH) for BEAUTY & THE BEAST!

The world’s favourite love story gets turned on its head in true W!LD RICE style this festive season. From the same team that brought you last year’s runaway hit Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs, BEAUTY & THE BEAST is a spellbinding musical comedy filled with laugh-out-loud jokes, fabulous song and dance routines, stunning costumes and sets… and singing utensils!
