Volunteering as an usher is a great opportunity to get acquainted with our theater while seeing a show for free– we’re always looking for friendly people to help us welcome our audiences to each one of our productions.
ATTIRE: Ushers are typically called to the theatre 45 minutes prior to the curtain time of a production (though this may vary according to the needs of the play), and are expected (unless otherwise noted) to wear clean, pressed, all-black or black and white semi-formal attire: black or white blouse or collared shirt; black slacks or skirt (no jeans, please); and
dress shoes (no athletic shoes). You’re also welcome to wear sweaters, blazers and vests.
DUTIES: Include, but are not limited to, inserting marketing materials into programs; learning about the seating chart and theatre protocol through a brief orientation; helping guests find their seats; picking up the theatre space following the performance; and, most importantly, helping make each patron’s stay as pleasant as possible.
QUALIFICATIONS: While prior experience as an usher isn’t necessary, it is important that volunteers: Display a warm, friendly demeanor and enjoy working with people Be able and willing to learn how to efficiently use the theatre’s assisted listening devices Tear tickets efficiently and effectively
