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 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 must 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 dress professionally. We prefer that you do not wear jeans. Footwear should be appropriate for climbing the Lantern stairs easily; flip-flops are not permitted and sandals are discouraged.
This is an unpaid volunteer opportunity. You will receive a complimentary ticket for one reserved seat at each performance you usher. Exact seating location cannot be guaranteed.
Due to Covid-19, usher registration for the 2020/21 season is not available. Please check back with us in summer 2021 for information about the 2021/22 season.
