Think about the last time you came to a new place and were greeted with a big smile. It made you feel welcome and hopefully put you more at ease in new surroundings, or it made you feel at home if you were returning for another visit. Well, those are exactly the aims of the Dallas Summer Musicals Ambassadors: to make all visitors feel welcome and to put smiles on their faces. We also feel that volunteering enhances you own viewing experience.
The requirements for a DSM Ambassador are simple: enjoy meeting people and taking the initiative to welcome patrons as they come through the doors, maybe for the first time. Because DSM is an Arts organization, you also need to enjoy and appreciate the performing arts, primarily the musicals that play during the DSM season. Like other volunteers, you will wear a uniform vest. What sets DSM Ambassadors apart from other theatre volunteers are the signs that we carry before and after each performance and during intermission, like the ones you see on the left. If a patron needs information, they can spot a DSM Ambassador sign down the hall! You are certain to get smiles in return for your efforts.
The job of an Ambassador is different from an usher or a ticket taker. DSM Ambassadors stand in the ticket lobby at the Welcome Desk to greet patrons who enter the Music Hall and answer questions that patrons have about DSM, the venue or the show. DSM Ambassadors refer patrons to DSM or Music Hall staff to resolve problems. It is reassuring to know that there is a whole team available to resolve any question or any emergency that may arise. The DSM Ambassador Program is new and growing; we invite you to join as the program continues to grow.
