  • Welcome guests and distribute programs. 
  • Be able to read tickets and assist guests in finding seats. 
  • Be able to listen to guests, answer questions, or refer them to someone who can. 
  • Arrive at scheduled time and remain the duration of the show. 
  • Be positive, enthusiastic, and friendly. 
  • Have a desire to serve our guests.

Benefits: 

  • Ushers may attend the production they are helping with free of charge once the audience has been seated.
  • Ushers become part of the Opera House family and help ensure the Opera House is around for future generations!

Scheduling and Attendance: 

  • Scheduling is on a first come, first served basis.
  • Conflicts and emergencies happen, but we rely on ushers to be present and committed to their shifts. Ushers should advise supervisors that they are unable to attend at least 24 hours before their scheduled shift if at all possible.
