The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Ushers greet guests, help them find their seats and hand out programs. Ushers have the opportunity to see the show after all guests have been seated. If there are any late arrivals, it will be the responsibility of the Ushers to seat them at an appropriate time, as quietly as possible. Ushers assist with the concessions during intermission. After the show, they make sure the theatre is presentable and ready for the next performance. Many Ushers volunteer with friends or family members. There are a minimum of six Ushers per Mainstage performance, and four Ushers per Kate Goldman Children's Theatre performance. An initial training session in theatre and safety procedures is required by The Playhouse, as is annual update/informational meeting. Visit https://www.dmplayhouse.com for a current list of shows.
