Imperial Theatre Celebrates Volunteers

The Imperial Theatre in Saint John, NB recently honoured its volunteers.

A few weeks ago, Imperial Theatre staff and board members gathered in Saint John to celebrate a wonderful group of people: our volunteers!

A vital part of Imperial Theatre’s family, our dedicated volunteers -ushers, envelope stuffers, ticket takers and those who answer the call for all the big and little tasks in between – truly make us great!

Imperial Theatre volunteers are the envy of theatres across the country, reputed for their professionalism, courteous service, hard work and, well, for being the nicest people around!

The next time you come to Imperial Theatre, thank the lovely people in the white shirts – because we couldn’t do it without them!

Volunteering is a fundamental building block of civil society.
