The Box Office - The "Voice" of LTA

The Little Theatre of Alexandria mounts seven mainstage productions each season, which is an incredible number of plays and musicals for a community theater. All ticket sales for each of these theatrical creations go through our box office. LTA is very fortunate to have a full-time Box Office Manager, Tina Barry McCrea, to organize, arrange, and supervise a vast array of volunteers in order to ensure a smooth manage-ment of our ticket sales. To those contacting LTA for the first time, Tina is the pleasant, helpful voice they hear on the tele-phone. For those who already are members and subscribers, she’s the valuable old friend who is always willing to assist with any questions or difficulties and guide our patrons in their decisions. I guess one could say that Tina is the “Voice of LTA!”

In addition to handling subscriptions and daily ticket sales, Tina manages LTA’s social media and public relations (in conjunction with our Governor for PR) such as Facebook, Twitter, the LTA Blog, and the LTA website, as well as the press. She also compiles show reports of ticket sales for each production. While managing the box office during these productions, Tina trains and schedules our box office volunteers. She also assists with front of the house duties when needed. Tina’s daily office responsibilities encompass a wide range of responsibilities, skills, and expertise.

LTA welcomes volunteers at any time. If you’d like to work in our box office, please contact Tina at tina@thelittletheatre.com. No experience necessary! Tina will train you and assist you through the process. Working the box office desk, or the window during the performances is a wonderful way to meet and greet our LTA patrons. Observing the smiles of our audiences, and having the opportunity to converse with them before a performance, is a delight and a very satisfying experience. Come join the fun and add your “voice” to LTA!

-Joanna Henry (LTA Box Office Governor)
