Ushering

Volunteering as an usher is a great opportunity to get acquainted with our theatre while seeing a show for free. We’re always looking for friendly people to help welcome our audiences to each one of our productions!

ATTIRE: Ushers are typically called to the theatre one hour prior to the curtain time of a production (though this may vary according to the needs of the show), and are expected (unless otherwise noted) to wear clean, pressed, all-black semi-formal attire: black 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. Ushers will be given a red scarf to wear during their shift.

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.
