CURRENT OPENINGS: USHERS for the 2019/2020 Season- APPLY TODAY

Ushering

Our ushers are the friendly faces who greet patrons at the theater. While experience is not necessary, it is always appreciated. Before your first shift you will be trained and given a tour to allow you to best serve the patrons coming to the show. Scheduling is on a first come, first serve basis via email. Ushers are required to stay for the whole performance giving you a chance to see all of what MJTC has to offer.

Ushering Duties:

  • Stuffing programs/distributing them to patrons

  • Verifying tickets

  • Helping patrons to their seats

  • Stay through performance to assist with any needs in the theater

  • Quickly walking through the theater to pick up programs after each performance

COMMITMENT: Volunteer ushering requires you to be on your feet and able to move up and down stairs. Some light lifting may be required. Volunteer Usher hours vary. Time commitment is usually 3 hrs per shift.

SCHEDULING & ATTENDANCE POLICY: We understand conflicts and emergencies arise, however, 2 no-shows to scheduled usher shifts could result in removal from the volunteer program. We rely on our ushers to be present and up to the task at hand for entire shift providing excellent customer service to our patrons.

Office

Office volunteers help with MJTC’s direct mailings. MJTC does approximately six (6) mailings a year. Office volunteer work includes putting labels on mail piece or stuffing and sealing envelopes. For every 2 hours you help in the office you will receive 1 complimentary ticket to a show in the current season. This is a wonderful way to help MJTC and see all the productions.
