Below are descriptions of roles typically needed for each production.
Lead: Laura Edeburn email@example.com
Arrive 1 hour prior to show time for set-up of the ticket table. Help sell tickets and manage will-call tickets, which were purchased online. Help put away ticket supplies once sales are over. Generally, you will be able to see all but the very beginning of the show.
Arrive 45 minutes prior to show. (Exception – For the children’s shows, you will be asked to arrive 1 hour early to help seat the students; there are no tickets for these shows.) As an usher, you will direct audience members to the auditorium and hand out programs. If you stay and watch the show, you are asked to help move people back into the theatre at end of intermission. After the performance ends, you will be asked to collect programs at the door to be reused for the next performance.
StarGrams/Flowers at Intermission
Lead: Belinda Caspari firstname.lastname@example.org
Prior to the start of show and during intermission sell StarGrams / Flowers outside of the theater doors.
Concessions at Intermission
Lead: Tracy Nelson email@example.com
You will sell concessions prior to the show starting and during intermission. After intermission, you will be asked to help put away unsold concessions.
Help with Hair and Makeup/Quick Costume Changes
Lead: Laurie Clements firstname.lastname@example.org
Arrive at cast call and help actors with their hair and makeup. No exceptional talent required—the kids generally know how to do this but might need a little assistance. You may also be needed to assist with quick changes during the performance. One volunteer is needed for each of the dressing rooms during the first few performances. After that, the kids are generally good to go on their own.
Monitor Stage Doors
Arrive just prior to show time. One volunteer is needed to sit at each of the north and south hallways right by the stage entrance doors. Monitor doors to make sure no unauthorized people enter area. Keep an eye on kids. Help out with quick costume or makeup changes if necessary. Bring along something to do or read if you like. Very important – Make sure the hallways remain as quiet as possible; especially during the children’s performances.
Deliver posters to assigned locations in the area prior to the show.
