The Phoenix Convention Center's theatrical venues are currently seeking high energy, community service focused volunteers who are looking for opportunities to contribute some time to local arts organizations! The multi-purpose Symphony Hall (home to The Phoenix Symphony, Arizona Opera and Ballet Arizona) and Orpheum Theater venues are currently seeking high energy, community service-focused theater ushers who are looking for opportunities to contribute some time to local arts organizations! Ushers have the added benefit of enjoying the shows. The Phoenix Convention Center, a division of the City of Phoenix, operates the historic Orpheum Theatre located at 203 West Adams Street and Symphony Hall at 75 N. Second Street (2nd Street and Adams).

Ushers are engaged as hosts, and are the most visible reflection of service during events. Duties include:

  • Greet attendees
  • Hand out programs
  • Escort patrons to their correct seats
  • Provide direction and answer venue inquiries.

Ushers are relied upon to be courteous, friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful to the clients and patrons. In this manner, volunteer ushers are in a position to positively impact the experience of patrons of the arts in Phoenix, thereby benefiting those who utilize these facilities. Adults and adolescents (age 15-17) are encouraged to join us.

For the time being, new volunteer training is being postponed until further notice. Please check back at a later date as information becomes available.

Keep calm and wash on!
