Position Overview: 

The Front of House team is a vital part of ensuring Salt Lake Acting Company is welcoming to our patrons.

At SLAC we know the value of our audience. Life can pull us all in many directions and at SLAC, we honor the time and energy it takes to attend a show and support a theatre. We are very lucky to have so many loyal, supportive season subscribers, returning patrons, and first-time SLAC attendees.

SLAC is looking to add to the Front of House team. We are looking for people to help take excellent care of our audience while ensuring a safe, positive, and calm experience for our community. SLAC is continuing on the bridge back to live, in-person theatre and we want people excited to join us on this venture. As we continue to welcome more of our audience back through our doors we have a renewed awareness of what really matters: our community.

The ideal Front of House staff member is eager to be part of a team and is ready to support everyone on the team. This support can be seen by completing all expected tasks for a shift, consistent communication, being proactive in completing tasks that achieve our goal to have a welcoming space, and flexibility to shift and change in order to best support everyone on the team and their unique needs and skills.

Prior to show time, between acts, and at the end of the show the Front of House staff is focused on making the experience of the SLAC venue fantastic. All Front of House staff will shift between specific positions for each show.

Some of these tasks include clearing the outdoor walkway of debris, cleaning the lobby and theatre, ensuring bathrooms are tidy, taking tickets, greeting patrons, prepping and selling concessions, answering questions, etc.

Front of House staff members are supported by the administrative staff who will also be working each show in the position of Box Office, Subscriptions, and Host.  Front of House, Box Office, and Host all work together to facilitate a successful performance from preparing the space before the show, to greeting and seating the audience, and then cleaning the theatre at the end of the night.
