Come join the fun!
Liberty Hall is staffed by Liberty Hall Manager, Anne Payne, and a large group of dedicated volunteers. The Hall cannot operate on it's own - it is the people involved that make it special.
It's easy to volunteer and does not take a ton of time. We need people to help with ticketing, ushering, performer hospitality and marketing.
If you have a talent - we have a need. Just fill out the form on this site and you will soon be contacted through email by our (volunteer) Volunteer Coordinator to see how you would like to help out. It is that simple. Usually volunteer times are in blocks of two hour periods. And each time you volunteer you earn a free pass to a furture event of your choice!
Some special position descriptions are listed here:
Hospitality Liaison – one needed per performance
The Manager will work closely with this volunteer who will act as performer hospitality and liaison. This person will assure that the requests of the performers are adhered to and that their needs are met (including food and beverage). They will answer the performers questions and be a calming and hospitable influence. They will make sure that the performer has an enjoyable time while in Tyler.
Time commitment: The week before the performance find out the performers needs. You will need to get snacks, a gift and make sure that their dinner plans are arranged. Any expenses you incur will be reimbursed.
