Usher Volunteers


Thank you for volunteering to usher for the Shawnee Playhouse.

  • Please arrive approximately 40 minutes before show time. House opens 30 minutes before curtain.

  • Attire: Black Bottoms, White Top and "Usher" Nametag (provided).

  • Each usher gets 2 complimentary tickets for the performance they are working; one for themselves and one for a guest.  These comps cannot be used for future performances.

  • The Box Office Staff will assign the usher comp seats which will be towards the back of the theatre or in the balcony.

  • Ushers are to be at least 16 years old.


  • Please greet the customers and walk them to their seats. Hand customer tickets and playbills.

  • Check e-tickets and seat customers in their assigned seats.

  • If asked, please help with concessions at intermission.

  • Check the house for garbage and left over playbills after the show.

  • If you are unable to usher on a day you signed up for, please contact us ASAP so that we may find a replacement for you.

  • Please do not go behind the ticket/concession counter unless asked to help and please do not put your personal items there while you are ushering. Space is very limited.

  • We ask that you NEVER re-seat customers! Always send them out to the Box Office Staff if there is a seating problem (double booking, etc).
