The Customer Experience

PICT Classic Theatre patrons and donors are important to us. They are part of our theatre family and we are their host. They join us seven or more times a year for plays, special events, lectures and discussions, and they deserve to have an enjoyable experience from start to finish. From greeting and assisting patrons at our theatres, to participating at events, to providing office and logistical support, to assembling thank-you gifts and celebrating special guests, how we perform this work matters.
