The Orpheum salutes our volunteer support group, Friends of the Orpheum, for over thirty-five years of tireless work dedicated to the Theatre. 


Don't just applaud...Volunteer!

Friends of the Orpheum is a not-for-profit civic organization whose primary function is to provide volunteer ushers in support of the Orpheum Theatre's management needs. Members of FOTO are the Theatre's most important frontline contact with Theatre patrons. FOTO provides patrons with quality customer service and help to create a positive and memorable performance experience. Members of FOTO also provide valuable services as greeters, ticket takers, ushers, and tour guides.

With hundreds of performances annually, The Orpheum always welcomes friendly new faces. If you are interested in joining our volunteer organization, Friends Of The Orpheum* (FOTO).
