Folsom Theatre Co. Annie Fall 2018
USHERING (ages 12+)
Most of our volunteers get involved by ushering for performances. Our audience members need to get from the parking lot to their seat. We rely exclusively on volunteers to make this possible.
Usher Responsibilities Include:
- Tearing tickets
- Distributing show programs
- Assisting audience members to their seats
- Quickly walking through the theater after performances to pick up programs
AGE LIMIT: For the safety of everyone involved, ALL USHERS MUST BE 12 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER and demonstrate effective customer service skills. Folsom Theatre Co. relies on ushers in emergency situations, and strives to have the safest experience possible.
Scheduling is a first come, first served basis.
TIME COMMITMENT: Volunteer ushering requires you to be on your feet and able to move up and down stairs. Some light lifting may be required. Volunteer Usher hours vary. Time commitment is usually 2 hrs per shift.
SCENE SHOP / PAINTING
We are looking for experienced adults to help in our scene shop. Come help us build, paint, and construct sets for our upcoming performance. Relevant experience, in theatre or in life, a huge plus. Put your skills to good use helping introduce children to the excitement of live theatre! Some weekday availability required.
