What's Up at FOH?

Join our Key Grip Club!

Anyone who has watched movie credits has seen the title “Key Grip.” Key Grips are the heavy lifters behind any movie or stage set. The Opera House is looking for a few volunteer key grips.

The Key Grip Club will complement the important work done by the FOH Stagehands group. We are looking for a core group of about a dozen dedicated volunteers who don't mind a little heavy lifting. (And the more lifters, the easier the lift!).

The Key Grip Club will aid in such ongoing efforts as loading in and out equipment for our subscription series and theatre performances, erecting stage risers when required, helping maintain stage apparatus (raising and lowering curtains, cyclorama, movie screen, etc.), painting the stage and general FOH upkeep.

The Key Grip Club is a great way to become involved at FOH, make friends and do some great things for your community. Oh, and did we mention the T-shirts?

Fairmont Opera House would like to thank all the volunteers who have dedicated themselves to the success of our efforts for the past year. FOH couldn't exist without you!
