The ICA is seeking volunteer ushers for a variety of performances- dance, music, children’s programming, lectures, film, and teen events. We’re hoping to find people who are friendly, helpful, and interested in working with us to make our idea of "radical welcome" a reality. Responsibilities may vary depending on the type of event and the place you are assigned by the house manager.

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

Stuffing programs

Welcoming attendees to the theater and directing them to their seats

Handing out programs and scanning tickets

Directing patrons to the house manager to solve any seating issues

Assisting patrons at intermission

Checking the house after the performance for trash and and lost items

We offer our ushers:

A chance to see the show/event (or most of it, depending on usher responsibilities)

Rewards for referring new ushers and for ushering a variety of shows.


Most performances are evenings and weekends. You can sign up for the shifts that fit best with your schedule- but be aware that there are limited slots for each event! The production manager will send an email of open shifts to the entire usher list, and will assign ushers starting on the date specified in that email.

If you have questions or would like to add your name to our usher list, please email ushers@icaboston.org .
