Glendale Arts invites you to join our team as an Volunteer Usher at the historic Alex Theatre in Glendale, CA. Ushers greet guests, scan tickets, and direct guests through the auditorium. They distribute programs, answer questions, respond to guest comments and/or complaints in prompt and friendly manner, and perform other duties as assigned.
Alex Ushers are invited to watch the shows they staff after all patrons have been seated and the House Manager releases them from duty. Additionally, each show an Usher works earns him or her credit toward two free tickets AND entry into a monthly drawing for generous gift card giveaways. Alex Ushers also enjoy complimentary parking, and refreshments.
Volunteering at the Alex Theatre is a great way for college and high school students to gain practical work experience in front-of-house theatre staffing. Hours volunteered at the Alex can be used toward the Community Service Award for Glendale High School students.
Here is a partial list of performances Ambassadors can attend for free, either by volunteering or earning credit toward tickets, pending availability:
Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra
