Apprentices will be assigned to an ushering team. They are required to usher three times for each of their team's 5 assigned productions. Arrival time is 6:30 pm, the plays start at 8:00 pm. Sundays: 12:30 pm; Curtain 2:00 pm. Apprentices report to the performance managers and should check in with the manager on duty upon arriving at the theatre to usher. During this time, apprentices will greet patrons, usher, deliver desserts at intermission, and direct cars in the parking lot. Unless serving as part of the production run crew, planning to watch the entire show, or it is strike night, apprentices will be required to leave after intermission has ended, approximately 9:30 pm.
Appropriate dress required: Apprentice T-Shirt (provided), nice pants, skirts or long shorts. Appropriate footwear (no flip flops). Short shorts are not permitted, even if you are in the parking lot.
An ushering schedule for apprentices will be made for the entire 3 week run of a play. Apprentices will be given the opportunity to submit ushering requests. Ushering requests must be submitted through email to the performance manager. Once a shift is filled, it will be closed and you will need to select a different date. If a request is not received, an ushering assignment will be given. It is your responsibility to find a replacement if you cannot make your assigned ushering date. Any missed ushering shift needs to be made up by attending an additional strike.
