Here at DST we are very proud to have our very own Assembly Rooms Theatre. The box office is open 9:00-17:00 Monday-Friday, as well as showtimes run by our amazing group of student box office supervisors and volunteers, and of course stays open later on show evenings! (Do make sure to check out our line up in the What’s On section)


  Box Office & Bar Supervisors

Our paid box office supervisors are mainly recruited over the summer and receive training in first aid, fire marshalling, cash handling and till operating. In day-time shifts they are responsible for answering queries about shows and selling tickets both in-person and online. On show shifts they are responsible for selling tickets and refreshments, communicating with the production team to coordinate the auditorium opening, and cashing up / closing down at the end of the shift. As an added bonus, they receive a complimentary ticket for the show they are on shift for. 

Main Responsibilities for supervisors:

  • Welcoming the audience
  • Providing information about shows
  • Taking bookings for events using a computer-based system
  • Taking payments by cash and card for tickets, memberships, and retail
  • Dealing with enquiries in person and on the phone

  Box Office Volunteers

Our box office volunteers are recruited throughout the year and assist the box office supervisor on busier show nights. They are responsible for welcoming the audience, checking tickets and directing audience members to their seats and helping with the sales of snacks and drinks during any interval. They also receive a complimentary ticket to any show they work on and valuable experience if they wish to become a supervisor later (or another job).

Main Responsibilities for volunteers:

  • Welcoming the audience
  • Checking tickets and directing audience members to seats
  • Assisting with the sales of snacks and drinks
