Capitol Theatre Volunteer Portal

The Capitol has several opportunities for prospective volunteers like yourself to join us in educating and uplifting our beautiful city of Rome, NY. If you like live shows, classic movies, big band concerts, or any of the other diverse types of productions we have at Rome Capitol, then spend the night with us. You’ll help our shows run smoothly and our patrons enjoy their night on the town. If you’re more of a heart-of-the-lion type, join our close-knit staff in the office when the theatre is quiet. We also have opportunities for those who want to get their hands dirty. Those with construction experience will find a myriad of projects during our expansion phase to help the theatre grow.

Our office volunteers help us navigate the flow of running an historic theatre by answering phones, filing, and maintaining customer and community relationships. If you’d like to spend your weekdays with us in the office, then let us know by filling out the form below.

From newcomers to our most seasoned ticket holders, everyone enjoys the comfort of a friendly face to help navigate seating charts and find their seats quickly and comfortably. If you like putting people at ease and being the face of our great theatre, then ushering might be for you!

Ticket Takers
A smiling face and a warm welcome do wonders to lift the spirits. And that’s exactly what our ticket takers provide, an introduction to the friendly atmosphere of our theatre.  As the ticket taker, you’ll be the first person our patrons see upon walking through the door, so you’ll help everyone feel at home.

Do you enjoy being in a fast-paced environment? Do you live for the thrill of a challenge? Then you’ll enjoy working behind our vintage-themed concession stand. Whether you’re popping up popcorn for our hungry customers or taking orders from our customers, you’ll love the lively work and fun comradery of volunteering behind the concession stand!

Clean Up
Our theatre is growing, and with that growth comes greater need for maintenance and clean up. Are you the type who likes to get their hands dirty to make a place the best it can be? Are you a fan of historic architecture? If so, then we would appreciate your help in maintaining our lovely space through clean up and restoration.
