The Parking attendant is responsible for safe parking for as many of our patrons as possible.
Appointed by the House Manager, the Parking attendant directs patrons to and from parking spaces.
Typical tasks and tips
- Become familiar with parking lot layout and desired traffic flow patterns.
- TIP: Ensure that cars are parked in such a way that any car may leave the lot without moving any other car.
This avoids the need to disrupt a performance if a patron needs to leave early.
- Set up parking lot signs and traffic control devices one and one-half hours before the opening curtain.
- TIP: Signs are on the workshop wall above the door to the second floor.
One is designed to hang over the guard rail on the entrance ramp, while the other is designed to stand against the building wall on the other side of the ramp.
- SAFETY TIP: Traffic cones should be placed across the exit drive, near the sidewalk, to prevent patrons from attempting to enter the lot from the wrong end.
Once the performance has begun, the cones should be moved to the bottom of the entrance ramp, to prevent patrons from attempting to exit via the entrance ramp, which provides poor visibility.
- Ensure cast and crew do not park in lot.
- Direct them to parking spaces on the near side of West Chestnut street.
- Direct auto and pedestrian traffic into and out of our parking lot in a safe and courteous manner.
- TIP: If you see a patron parking on or blocking private property, please ask them to move their vehicle.
- Patrol the parking lot during a performance, to ensure that patron's vehicles remain safe.
- Remove and store parking lot signs and traffic control devices once patrons have left.
