The Wheeler Opera House is owned by the City of Aspen and would not be possible without dedicated volunteer ushers of all ages who contribute their time and talents helping this community venue create enjoyable events for all.

The Wheeler Opera House Volunteer Program

Our volunteers are integral to the success of the Wheeler Opera House. As a volunteer, you’ll generally arrive an hour before show time to assist with front-of-house tasks, such as ticketing and ushering, to create a welcoming experience for all our guests. Once the performance begins, you’ll head into the theater, helping to monitor and assist patrons during the show. After a little post-show tidying of the venue, you’ll be on your way with a sense of accomplishment for your service! Thank you!
