Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Houston Ballet!

The Guild is the official volunteer organization of Houston Ballet, comprising of about 350 dedicated men and women who assist in all areas of the Ballet. Volunteers usher at Student Matinee performances, help with backstage tours for children, plan birthday celebrations for our pre-professional company, and so much more. In addition, there are several social events including coffees and an annual trip. To learn about Houston Ballet's Guild, please click here: Houston Ballet Guild.

Our single largest volunteer effort is the Houston Ballet Nutcracker Market, and you do not have to be a member of the Guild to participate. Volunteers take tickets, hand out bags and programs, and set-up for special events. In return, you receive free parking and Market entry on the day of your shift. Please go to www.shiftboard.com/nutcrackermarket to fill out the short application. You will receive an email with more your temporary password shortly. Once you have registered, you will receive an email when the volunteer schedule for the 2016 Houston Ballet Nutcracker Market opens online.

To find out more about becoming a Houston Ballet volunteer, please contact Patsy Chapman at 713.535.3271 or pchapman@houstonballet.org.


See you at the ballet!
