Thank you for your interest in volunteering at The Grand Opera House. We proudly offer two distinct volunteer programs:


The Grand Show Corps currently has over 200 volunteers, and we continue to grow thanks to people like you!

The Grand Opera House is a multi-level theater that presents world-renowned artists and a wide variety of entertainment. The baby grand is home of live at the baby grand as well as various community groups. The Playhouse on Rodney Square is home of Delaware's Broadway Experience.

The majority of our shows are scheduled in the evenings with some weekend afternoons. We also have occasional student performances during weekday mornings and afternoons.

Each member of the Show Corps is assigned to a squad and each squad is assigned to a show. Squad responsibilities include ticket-taking, ushering, coat-check, bartending, and patron safety. On average, each squad is scheduled three to five times a month. Those who are unable to volunteer during the weekdays due to full-time employment will not be asked to do so. Every volunteer is required to work all 3 theaters based on assignment.

Please fill out the Show Corps Application and return it to The Grand Opera House. You will be contacted as soon as a date has been determined for the next orientation. In the meantime, please call the Show Corps office at 302-658-7897 ext. 3607 if you have any questions. We look forward to meeting you!
