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

RedCoats believe so strongly in our mission that they are willing to pledge their time and talents to Playhouse Square. Last year, they contributed more than 145,000 volunteer hours.  

What do RedCoats gain in return?

  • New friends
  • Satisfaction for making a contribution to the performing arts
  • Pride in Cleveland and Playhouse Square
  • Complimentary parking for events

Volunteers are assigned to work a certain day/evening with an an average of 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.  

The Playhouse Square Volunteer department is taking an intermission and will not be accepting new volunteers for the time being.  Please look for updates this fall on new recruitment and Orientation sessions. We look forward to meeting you and bringing you into the Playhouse Square family in the future.
