Make Memories... Become a Volunteer today!

A volunteer “RedCoat” at Playhouse Square shows their passion and support of our not-for-profit mission and the performing arts every time they walk in the door.  

RedCoats are the face of Playhouse Square to nearly one million guests annually who attend over one thousand curtains, all of which contribute in excess of $43 million to the local economy each year.  

RedCoats believe so strongly in our mission that they are willing to pledge their time and talents to Playhouse Square.  Last year, they contributed over 110,000 volunteer hours.  

What do RedCoats receive in return? They:

  • Meet new friends.
  • Make a contribution to the performing arts.
  • Pride in Cleveland and Playhouse Square.
  • Complimentary parking for events. 

Volunteers will be requested to work a certain day/evening and work an average 4-5 hours per assignment. Duties include greeters, ticket scanners, ushers, wheelchair escorts and general event related positions.  Walking up steps and standing are also requirements of the job.
