DMTC-YPT House Manager & Usher Volunteers
Thank you for signing up to manage the front of the house and/or usher for YPT's production of Pirates of Penzance, Jr.!
Please note that House Managers must be trained and over the age of 18. Ushers do not need prior training or experience, however they must be at least 13 years old. We have four sign up slots for 13+ (which includes people over 18) and four sign up slots for 18+. We need to be sure that we have enough adults to usher for each show. Please note: DMTC no longer allows ushers under the age of 13 to volunteer for this role.
House Managers should arrive promptly at 1:00pm. If you volunteer to usher, please arrive 45 minutes before the show begins. For example, if the show begins at 2:00 p.m., you are requested to arrive at 1:15 p.m. Please be sure to dress in conservative, business-casual clothing in all black OR a combination of black and white (no tank tops, shorts, jeans, short skirts or flip flops). You should report to the House Manager who will assign all tasks which may include, but are not limited to, selling concessions (18+ only), seating patrons, scanning tickets, checking restrooms for cleanliness and picking up trash in the theater after the show. In return for your service, you can see the show for free the same day that you usher.
IMPORTANT: If you are unable to fulfill your duty for any reason, please remove your name from the sign up sheet so that another volunteer might sign up in your place. You may also contact the sign up manager, Sarah Blake, at (202) 557-9936. We really count on our usher volunteers to be there when they have signed up and we appreciate your service more than you know. Thank You!
