Signing up to volunteer front-of-house

RLT uses HostedGroups to manage our front of house volunteers: ushers, concessions, and house managers.

Before you begin, you need to create an account on hostedgroups. You only do this one time. Here's how:

  1. Go to http://hostedgroups.org
  2. On the right side, look for the box Want to join?
  3. Fill in your name (please use your full name), your email address and a password then click "Sign Me Up".
  4. If the account was created successfully, you will be automatically logged in; if there was an error, try again.
  5. At the top of the page, click the Accounts link.
  6. Click browse the Groups Directory. (here's the direct link)
  7. Click Raleigh Little Theatre in the list.
  8. On the right, a box appears. Click Join Now.

Now that you've created an account and joined the RLT group, you can sign up to volunteer for a show:

  1. Go to http://hostedgroups.org and log in
  2. In the Group Memberships box, click the Raleigh Little Theatre group
  3. See all the shows currently needing volunteers and click the one you're interested in.
  4. Click Register for this event.

That's it! The time listed is the time you should report to the theatre. For ushers, this is usually 45 minutes before the show starts (15 minutes before the house opens).

If you change your mind and can longer volunteer for the show, repeat the same steps to go back to the show and click Unregister from this event.

Tip: You can see what you've signed up for using the Calendar view. Days where you have registered are highlighted. Click the day to see the time of your signup.


  • Online signups for a show close 24 hours before the start time.
  • Each person in your group has to sign up. HostedGroups currently doesn't allow you to sign up a group of volunteers.
