Volunteer as an Usher
VOLUNTEERING AS AN USHER is a great way for theatre lovers of all ages (and all budgets) to go behind the scenes and see a Dobama play for FREE – we’re always looking for responsible and friendly people to help us welcome our audience to our productions.
Duties and Attire
Ushers are typically called to the theatre 60 minutes prior to the curtain time of a production (though this may vary according to the needs of the play), and are expected (unless otherwise noted) to wear black and white attire. Duties include inserting marketing materials into programs, learning about the seating and theatre protocol, tearing tickets and 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. If you are interested in ushering for Dobama productions, contact us at 216-932-6838.
