Volunteer Ushers needed for My Fair Lady at Detroit Opera House

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Michigan Opera Theatre

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 5 people are interested

Ushers are needed to help with what is sure to be a huge crowd for this wonderful musical. From Lincoln Center Theater, comes "a sumptuous new production of the most perfect musical of all time" (Entertainment Weekly), Lerner & Loewe’s MY FAIR LADY. Boasting such classic songs as "I Could Have Danced All Night," "The Rain in Spain," "Wouldn’t It Be Loverly" and "On the Street Where You Live," MY FAIR LADY tells the story of Eliza Doolittle, a young Cockney flower seller, and Henry Higgins, a linguistics professor who is determined to transform her into his idea of a "proper lady." But who is really being transformed?

Ushers scan tickets, welcome guests, give directions, help seat guests and more. Ushers also get free parking during their shift. There will be training opportunities on June 28 and before each shift. More details during inquiry. We are looking for friendly ushers who love to interact with people. Shifts require standing and walking the whole time.

Description

The roots of the MOT date back to 1963 as an opera touring and educational outreach organization. Officially, Michigan Opera Theatre was founded in 1971 due to the vision and leadership of Dr. David DiChiera. Since that first season, in which MOT staged its first full-length opera season at Detroit's Music Hall, opera has continued to be performed in venues throughout Detroit for 35 seasons. During its history, over 2,500,000 Michigan residents have benefited from the MOT experience. The DOH has become a catalyst in the revitalization of Detroit and a centerpiece of the new downtown entertainment district. MOT is ranked as an Anchor III organization by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA). Only ten other arts or cultural organizations in Michigan share this top honor.

Since its founding, Michigan Opera Theatre has grown from a modest regional company to one of the ten largest opera companies in the United States and the third largest to own its own opera house. The Detroit Opera House has one of the largest stages for opera in the U.S., an orchestra pit that accommodates 100 musicians and an acoustically superb 2,700-seat theater.
