Do you enjoy meeting new people? Do you love the arts? Do you want to support the arts while creating a positive experience for others?

The Hammer Theatre in Downtown San Jose is looking for folks to join our Volunteer Corps. Volunteers serve as event ushers, taking tickets and assisting patrons inside the theatre during in-person events. During this time of heightened health concerns, we require all patrons, staff and volunteers to show proof of full vaccination AND wear a mask while inside the theatre building.

Volunteers are required to attend an initial 2 hour Orientation in person at the theatre before their first volunteer shift. Our next Orientation is February 2nd. Go to https://forms.gle/oNK3AtgbDxJDt4TB9 to sign up. After orientation you will be able to view and sign up for shifts as you choose. Shift dates and times vary and all verified volunteers are given advance notice of those dates and times and an opportunity to sign up in advance. Most shifts are 3-4 hours.

Volunteer perks include one free non-alcoholic drink from concessions per shift, the opportunity if space allows to be inside the theatre and view the show while also keeping aware of any audience needs, and a post show raffle prize for returning volunteers. Volunteers also may choose to request validated parking at a nearby garage, or take nearby public transportation.

Mission Statement

The Hammer’s mission is to serve the community through works that illustrate the unique culture of creativity, diversity, and innovation in Silicon Valley.


The Hammer Theatre, named after former San José Mayor Susan Hammer and her husband Phil Hammer, a San José Rep Board Trustee, was completed in 1997 via a collaboration between the San José Redevelopment Agency and San José Repertory Theatre Company. This distinctive theatre offered theatrical productions for over seven years for San José and Bay Area patrons and to national acclaim. In March 2016, San José State University reopened the Hammer Theatre as a modern performance venue in the heart of downtown San José. The theatre serves San José’s community and the university through programming that features student, local, and international talent.
