If you are good at explaining things, are helpful and personable, this is the job for you! Shifts start at 2 p.m. and end at 10:30 p.m.

These are shifts for each performance venue. Descriptions of the performances and the location of each of these venues can be found on the main website at http://www.firstnightalexandria.org.
