Gamm Usher Sign Up Sheet
By Aaron Posner
NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE
Complicated, passionate and difficult, John Quincy Adams was a brilliant diplomat, ineffectual one-term president and congressman known for his eloquence, arrogance and integrity. This unique, highly-theatrical play by award-winning playwright Aaron Posner (Stupid F**king Bird) imagines key confrontations between JQA and some of America’s most dynamic figures: George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, his own father, John Adams and more. At once provocative, haunting and hilarious, this power play challenges the way we think of our country, our government and ourselves.
"JQA is an ambitious, delightful work that not only makes for an enjoyable theater experience, but also leaves its audiences ruminating on the deeper philosophies it explores….Something that will linger in minds long after the lights have lifted, much like any presidential legacy." Broadway World
Ushers are to arrive one hour prior to performance time. The start time below is the exact time that we would like you to report to the theatre. The end time lets you know when you are done unless you are staying for the show.
If we are sold out and no seating is available, please see the box office manager that evening to make arrangements to see the show at another time.
It is important that you adhere to The Gamm's dress code (no exceptions): plain white dress shirt and black slacks for men, plain white blouse and black slacks/skirt for women.
If you can't make it to a shift, please call the box office as far in advance as possible (401-723-4266) to let us know. We really rely on all of you. You help make the show start on time, which is such an important part of the process.
It's always fun to do things with a partner so ask a friend to tag along! If you know of anyone that may be interested in ushering please forward this link on or let me know and I will contact them. If you don't stay for the show you're only committing an hour of your time, which is so appreciated by both the Gamm staff and the patrons. We do, however, encourage you to stay for the show if there are seats available!
