Volunteer at Starlight

Volunteer at Starlight

Starlight’s volunteer Ambassadors have been a Kansas City legacy since 1959. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Starlight relies on the dedication of its Ambassadors to fulfill our mission of providing exceptional performing arts experiences. We invite you to help us preserve this KC entertainment tradition. Volunteering at Starlight Theatre provides a host of networking opportunities, invitations to events, and complimentary tickets to Broadway performances.

We Invite You to Share in the Guest Experience – Volunteer as a Starlight Ambassador

Our Ambassadors serve as essential volunteers that support our guest experience services and assist with:

  • Usher Duties & Seating Guests
  • Guest Information Services
  • Horticulture & Groundskeeping
  • Ticket Scanning & Audience Assistance

Starlight’s Ambassador Program is a fun opportunity to volunteer your time and meet and greet the people of our community—plus, as an added benefit, our volunteers enjoy the benefit of seeing a show under the stars. Starlight recognizes the importance of the gift of time and remains committed to being good stewards of that valuable contribution.

Our success depends on volunteers to help ensure smooth operations and enjoyable experiences for our guests, so come join the Starlight team and greet our guests with a smile!
