The usher is one of the first people at the theater that patrons will meet when they attend a performance, so it is crucial for ushers to be friendly, patient, and people-oriented. For each performance, MJTC uses one (1) usher. Ushers will be shown the layout of the theater so they can direct patrons toward their seats. The time commitment is approximately three (3) hours per performance (depending upon the performance run time). Performances take place weekday evenings and on weekends. No special advanced training is needed. This volunteer opportunity is open to students and adults, ages 15 and older.
Other expectations and duties include:
Going through the house to make sure it is clean prior to the performance
Helping patrons to their seats
Stay through performance to assist with any needs in the theater
