Celebrating Volunteer Week at Aultsville Theatre

On Tuesday, April 18th, Aultsville Theatre’s Board of Directors and staff paused to celebrate National Volunteer Week and the contributions of the large volunteer community at Aultsville Theatre.

Aultsville Theatre’s Front of House & Volunteer Coordinator, Gisèle Roy, welcomed guests to a reception on stage at the Theatre where the volunteer team was celebrated like the stars they are.

For those unfamiliar with Aultsville, the Theatre is operated by a small core team supported by a volunteer Board of Directors and a large group of volunteers who fill roles as ushers, greeters, and other front of house support roles.

In the first year since Theatre operations resumed following the COVID-19 pandemic, over 1400 volunteer hours have been logged by the Front of House Team alone. Gisèle was quick to point out that throughout that time, she has often received heartwarming and encouraging feedback related to the enthusiastic and cheerful approach of Aultsville’s volunteer team.

“Our reopening was initially hosted by several volunteers from the pre-pandemic times, but in the last year, we have more than doubled our initial number of volunteers. My heart overflows when I witness the heartfelt welcome that you consistently extend to everyone who enters our facility, whether it be promoters, performers or patrons. I appreciate your impressive and cohesive team spirit and I thank all of you for being a part of my universe” concluded Gisèle.

Board of Directors President and long time Aultsville volunteer, Gerry Roy, echoed the importance of volunteers to the crowd and spoke to his own experience of getting involved with the Theatre, a passion passed down by his parents. Gerry also discussed the challenges that were faced upon the reopening of the Theatre and expressed his optimism for the future as we look ahead to some exciting new programming and improvements to the Theatre space.
