Box Office Attendant

Alberta Theatre Projects is preparing for our next season of producing live, professional, contemporary theatre in Calgary.

We create world-class contemporary theatre that blurs the line between the audience and the artist, by telling the most provocative and engaging stories of our time. By embracing the intimacy and unique audience configuration opportunities of the Martha Cohen Theatre, we offer an exciting new experience for our audience with each production.

This is a very exciting time in the history of Alberta Theatre Projects as we look to the future of how our company can be a leader in new play development and producing the finest contemporary theatre that engages our community by reflecting their stories on stage.

As we welcome Rohit Chokhani as our new Artistic & Executive Director, Alberta Theatre Projects is in a high growth phase and we are excited to keep the momentum going as one of our country’s leaders in professional theatre, and we can’t wait for you to join us on this journey.

We are recruiting for front-line professionals to join us on a part-time casual basis to be part of the magic of the theatre experience. Reporting directly to the ticket sales manager, this is a part-time position with shifts occurring during evenings and weekends when there is a production on stage.

You’ll work independently as the only box office professional for the shows you’re scheduled for, and offer a friendly and helpful experience to patrons picking up tickets, buying tickets, or inquiring about anything related to their purchases. You might also come in to the administrative offices to help with sales strategies managed by the ticket office.

We can’t wait to welcome an energetic and collaborative person that can easily integrate into a culture that thrives on kindness, excellence, and reflecting our community.

  • Maintaining positive relations with the public through the delivery of exceptional customer service.

  • Participating in outbound calling on our telemarketing sales campaigns.
  • Maintaining accurate information in our ticketing and database software.
  • Providing support to the  ticket sales manager with various organizational duties.

What You Bring

  • Strong organizational skills necessary to prioritize and manage concurrent initiatives.
  • Strong attention to detail and a high degree of self-motivation.
  • The ability to work both independently and within a team.
  • Previous experience in sales will be a strong asset for this role.
  • Experience on ticketing software is an asset, but training will be provided.

What We Can Offer

This role is part of the ticket office staff group and will be remunerated at $17 per hour.
