The TYA Hospitality Crew plays an important role in setting the stage for our patrons' theater experience.
Whether patrons are students and teachers attending weekday performances or families attending our public
shows, our job is to ensure that our patrons are safe, comfortable, and well-entertained.
In turn, our Hospitality Crew volunteers experience the excitement of a live show, provide a valuable service,
socialize with others, have fun, and feel a part of TYA.
