LEETON'S most iconic building is creating a buzz among the tourism world, but with that comes the need for a little extra help.
The theatre is on the hunt for volunteers to help showcase the theatre and its history to tour groups that come through town.
In the coming months, there are many tour groups booked in to stop in at the theatre and have a look around.
Residents with a yarn to spin and a knowledge of the theatre would be perfect for the role, according to Roxy Theatre co-ordinator Sam Webber.
"Basically we've got a lot of bus tours coming towards the end of the year as it warms up," he said.
"So we're hoping to get some knowledge of locals in to help with that.
"I think visitors respond to local people, they like hearing their stories."
The idea of a volunteer program at the theatre is one Mr Webber is hoping to grow over time.
He said there wasn't one specific group of people or individuals that he was looking for when it came to the volunteer role.
"It's open to anyone who is interested really," Mr Webber said.
"It's kind of tricky because we will be having to stop the program for a while when the redevelopment work does start, so it's a bit hard to get something up and running.
"However, for the next few months I hope we can at least get the ball rolling.
"We'll definitely revisit the idea once the theatre work is completed.
"At this point, it's just to assist with the tour groups, but towards the end of the year there could be some shows happening that we might need ushers for and things like that."
Mr Webber was pleased the Roxy Theatre was a stop for tour groups as it allowed them to gain a first-hand appreciation of what is known as Leeton's crowing jewel.
"We've got two full weeks coming up where there's a tour group every day ... they are coming from across the state," he said.
The Roxy Theatre redevelopment project continues to remain in the planning stage as designs are put together and consultations continue.
Those wanting to be part of the volunteer program should contact Mr Webber at the theatre on 6953 2074 or via email at email@example.com.
