Ushering
Want to see a show for free? Volunteer to usher a performance. You may view a complete detail of usher responsibilities here. To be an usher, you must be able to do the following:

• Arrive 30-45 minutes prior to show time and stay for the entire performance.
• Bring a friend who can usher with you (and meet the usher requirements). We need four ushers for each main stage show and two for arena shows.
• Be physically capable of helping frail patrons get seated. Must be able to help lift a person if they fall or provide assistance in an emergency situation.
• Be able to calmly, quickly and efficiently provide instructions and help escort patrons out of the building in the event of an emergency.
• Have good enough vision and physically be able to handle walking on stairs and in low-light situations in a dark theater.
• Be willing to enforce the house rules with assistance from the house manager.
• Wear a white shirt and black pants (plus apron provided by the theater).
• After the show-empty/refill lobby garbage cans, paper towels in restrooms and clean up the main stage/arena if needed.

We are updating/expanding our usher list for shows. If you'd like to have your name on an email distribution list for usher opportunities, please email us at gallerytheatre@onlinemac.com.
