Patron Services Team

Our team members are the first people that our patrons meet when they attend a performance, so it is crucial that they are friendly, patient, and people-oriented, with the ability to think quickly and act smartly in a variety of situations. The Team oversees all front‐of‐house management operations for rehearsals and performances and ensures that performers and patrons have an enjoyable event.  Patron services team members are responsible for learning the layout of the theater and facility in order to assist patrons. They are assigned a specific task and area of the theater at any given performance. These tasks may include seating patrons, taking tickets, ticket sales, merchandise sales and entertainer hospitality. All members will be trained in all of these fields. Team members must be knowledgeable of the venue, specific performance information and emergency procedures in order to assist patrons and performers with any questions. Assistance with minor stage and/or lobby set up may be requested.  Successful team members will be able to troubleshoot problems quickly and effectively to guarantee patron satisfaction and safety (in case of emergency situations). The Team must be comfortable working independently and as part of a team.  View the complete job description here

Student Internships

By connecting our students with some of the most talented individuals in the music, performance, management and production industries, our students will have unique educational opportunities that can prepare them for whatever their future aspirations may be.

Student internship opportunities include hands-on production aspects for live events, marketing and public relations, and venue management.  Internships run from September through June, and offer a flexible work schedule on evenings and weekends.  Interns will participate in scheduled activities throughout the year, including shadowing opportunities with industry professionals, training opportunities on various production equipment, and job shadowing with visiting artists.  Hardworking students who successfully complete the internship program may be promoted to paid opportunities. 

It is extremely important that interns maintain a high level of professionalism when it comes to work ethics, attention to detail, safety and responsibility within the OCPAEC. Interns will be working with high-profile clients and guest performers, and must be willing and able to work as a positive team member at all times.  Interns must possess characteristics that include:

  • Being well-organized and professional

  • Excellent communication skills

  • Ambitious, curious and eager to learn

  • Kind and personable

  • While some experience in the music industry would be great, it’s not necessary. 

We are currently searching for more students to join the PAEC team!
