Hello Friends!

We are seeking a number of ushers for each upcoming performance of The Hundred Dresses. After ushering, you may take a seat and see the performance for free! You will see a description of the show, and it's dates below. Your duties would include arriving one hour before the performance begins, and:

  • As an usher for a student weekday performance, you would assist by guiding students safely into the theater from their school buses, through the lobby, and into their seats.
  • As an usher for a public performance on a weekend evening or a matinee, you would assist with ticket scanning, playbill distribution, and directing people to their specific seats.

We accept solo volunteers as well as groups. Please speak with us if volunteers are 13 or under.


Metro Theater Company presents the third production of our season focusing on girl power and strong female leads: The Hundred Dresses, showing at the Grandel Theater! Please read a bit about the play below:

Wanda Petronski, the new girl in Room 13, is a Polish immigrant who lives in a shabby house and doesn’t have any friends. Every day she wears the same faded blue dress, but tells her new class-mates that she has a hundred dresses at home. Her classmates tease Wanda about her hundred dresses until one day she disappears from school. As guilt overtakes the children, they decide to find out what happened to Wanda and to make amends. But is it too late? Bullying, friendship and forgiveness are at the center of this play adapted from the beloved Newbery Honor Book by Eleanor Estes.

Metro Theater Company’s plays are for people of all ages and capacities. They offer weekend public performances but also work with schools to bring students in by bus during selected weekdays to foster learning through this exciting arts approach. Before and after the student shows, Metro Theater Company offers Educator Guides for teachers, and after the performances, the teaching artists visit the schools for further dialogue with students on the important conversations that emerge from the plays.

Please e-mail me at if you are interested. We’d love ushers for Performances from February. 4 th to February 26 th !
