This volunteer is stationed at the front door welcoming patrons as they enter the theatre and directing traffic to the box office where the tickets can be purchased/picked up.
Two ushers are stationed at the entrance of the theatre on the main level, one at the top of the steps. These volunteers will be responsible for making sure everyone who enters the theatre has a ticket, distributing playbills, and escorting patrons to their seats at shows that are reserved seating. Be sure to ask patrons to silence their cell phones before entering the theatre. During the performance, ushers are seated just inside of the theatre to police annoying cell phones during performances and escort latecomers.
A third usher is stationed inside the theatre at the wheelchair entrance to assist disabled patrons. This volunteer is also responsible for making sure the hall light is turned off at all times during the performance and no one enters the theatre from the back door area.
The ushers at the main entrance should ensure the track lights are on during the performance and turned off at the end of the show. Patrons should be asked to sit near the front of the theatre in order to accommodate late seating for performances that are general admission.
