In general, days and times are: Thu 6:45-10 PM, Fri-Sat 7:15- 10:30 PM, and Sun 1:15-5 PM. You can volunteer several times on one show or choose different shows. As an added bonus, anytime there are open seats in the house, ushers are invited to watch the show for free.
All of our active ushers are put on the usher email updates list. An email, requesting ushers, will be sent about a week and a half to two weeks before a show opens. Current and upcoming usher opportunities are also always listed on our website.

Ushers age 12-15 must be accompanied by an ushering adult.
