USHERING (Ages 12+)

We rely on our dedicated volunteers to make Stages performances possible with opportunities for students and adults 12 and older including ushering performances, assistance at special events, and office work. We also have opportunities to working alongside professionals creating our sets and costumes (special expertise required). As a thank you, Volunteers receive ticket vouchers to see future Stages Theatre Company productions at every shift AND are invited to the annual Volunteer Appreciation Reception. For more information about becoming a Stages volunteer, please contact us 952-979-1119 or mwessels@stagestheatre.org.

Ushers provide a welcoming and friendly face to all our patrons, no previous experience necessary. All new volunteers will receive training during your first shift and our House Managers are always there to assist you. Scheduling for ushering is on a first come, first served basis and a shift averages 3 hours.

AGE LIMIT: For the safety of everyone involved, ALL USHERS MUST BE 12 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER and demonstrate effective customer service skills. Stages Theatre Company relies on ushers in emergency situations and strives to have the safest experience possible. Volunteers Ages 12-15 MUST be accompanied by another volunteer 18+.

PLEASE NOTE: For the safety of the children and families we serve, please note that all volunteers 18+ must agree to a Child Protection Background Check. Cost for this is covered by Stages Theatre Company
Usher Responsibilities Include:
  • Tearing tickets
  • Distributing show programs
  • Assisting audience members to their seats

  • 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 hours per shift.

    Current Stages Theatre Company receive emails for ushering opportunities for upcoming productions 6 weeks before opening night. If you don’t see any emails, make sure to check your spam/junk folders or contact Marty mwessels@stagestheatre.org OR at 952-979-1111 with any questions.


    We always have projects that require special expertise, particularly in the areas of set building, costuming, office work, and support at special events.
