PPPS District Ambassador Program

We need your help to make the Paw Paw Performing Arts Center the best it can be.

Since its opening in 2003, The Paw Paw Performing Arts Center has begun the development of a program called “District Ambassadors”. Our Ambassadors provide a touch of class to each event by volunteering to hand out programs, assist in seating, take tickets, or work in the box office. There are no special skills needed to be an Ambassador, only the interest in assisting with a performance at our state of the art facility. “District Ambassadors” get to see the show for free and are a very vital part of the operation of the Paw Paw Performing Arts Center . Ambassadors are scheduled per event so there is no commitment to contribute time to each and every performance.

We would like to invite any adult community member or friends of the community that might be interested in becoming a “District Ambassador” to contact Kristofer Perkins at the Paw Paw Performing Arts Center at 415-5664 or by e-mail at Kristofer.Perkins@ppps.org. We would be thrilled to have you join us at the Performing Arts Center as an Ambassador!
