Registration is now open for our 2015/16 season, which runs now through June 26, 2016.
Ushers are a critical part of our audience services team! Ushers are responsible for assisting the House Manager to create a safe and pleasant experience for all Lantern patrons.
Ushers MUST be able to comfortably climb two flights of stairs, assist patrons with the stairs and/or other mobility issues, and stand for approximately 30 minutes. The ability to ably meet all these physical requirements is necessary to ensure the safety of all ushers and patrons.
Ushers must professionally, knowledgably, and cheerfully represent the Lantern to the public. Ushers must be at least 16 years of age.
When To Arrive
Ushers are scheduled to arrive one hour before showtime. You are providing a critical service to our patrons and staff, so please arrive on time. Ushering is a typically a 3-4 hour time commitment per performance.
Ushers are required to wear white tops and black bottoms. We prefer that you do not wear jeans, however, unfaded/untorn black jeans are acceptable.
This is an unpaid volunteer opportunity. You will receive a complimentary ticket for one reserved seat at each performance you usher.
Usher dates are confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis and most performances fill up quickly!
