“The Ambassadors play a huge part in creating the Guest Experience here at Starlight.”
- House Manager, Bob Potemski
On Tuesday, October 29 Starlight Theatre honored its premiere volunteer organization, the Starlight Ambassadors, with end-of-year appreciation party. This yearly event recognizes those who donate their time and talents to make each Guest's night at Starlight an unforgettable experience.
"The Ambassadors play a huge part in creating the Guest Experience here at Starlight." said the event's host and Starlight House Manager, Bob Potemski. "The amount of effort, dedication, and loyalty they demonstrate to this theatre on an ongoing basis is nothing short of phenomenal."
The Ambassadors were treated to a delicious dinner, provided courtesy of Plaza Catering, and a heartfelt, entertaining keynote address by Starlight's interim President, Donna Thomason. They were entertained by the event's MC Bob Potemski, who was assisted by Starlight's Director of Operations, Justin White. The evening concluded with the presentation of awards, recognizing individual volunteers for accomplishments ranging from years of service to specific over-the-top actions they took over the course of the season.
The Ambassadors help ensure that many of the day-to-day aspects of each event run smoothly, and they work hard to create an environment where every Guest is having an enjoyable, memorable experience. Nearly 200 people from all walks of life and from all over Kansas City volunteer their time at Starlight as Ambassadors each summer.
Why not help keep Starlight thriving by joining them? Ambassador activities include a wide range of duties, including leading facility tours, helping with auditions, staffing the Guest Information stations, ushering and ticket taking, hosting cast parties, and more.
