Do you have a very specific set of skills and some extra time? Reach out to let us know what interests you, and we’ll let you know if your volunteer aspirations match our needs at this time!
Act II Playhouse is open and we are ready to welcome Patrons back for our exciting 21-22 Season beginning this November, 2021. If you’re looking for a great way to get out and meet new people and see live theater for free, why not join us as an Act II Playhouse Volunteer Usher?
WHAT WE OFFER Volunteer Ushers can commit to ushering an entire series or a single performance. We offer matinees as well as evening performance ushering opportunities. Registration is offered on a first-come, first-served basis and certain performances fill up quickly!
HOW TO SIGN UP If you think this sounds like a fun opportunity, please give Audience Services a call at 215-654-0200, Monday-Saturday, 2PM to 6PM, or email us at [email protected]. We will send you an easy application to fill out and return.
COVID POLICY We are committed to keeping all of our Performers, Staff, Patrons and Volunteers safe in these rapidly changing times and we are currently requiring all of our Volunteer Ushers to be fully vaccinated. “Fully vaccinated” means you must have received at least two doses of the two-dose COVID-19 vaccine (Pfizer, Moderna), or at least one dose of the single-dose vaccine (Johnson & Johnson). Volunteers must present Photo ID and proof of a Covid Vaccination prior to their first scheduled performance. In addition, we require all Staff, including Volunteers, to wear a mask at all times throughout the building.
ARRIVING Volunteer Ushers must arrive 45 minutes before curtain time. Dress is business casual, no need to wear black and white, but no jeans or flip-flops please! Ushers must be able to stand for at least 60 minutes at a time and be able to climb a flight of stairs. We ask that you be comfortable with modern technology (we use electronic ticket scanners) and have a valid email address that you share with us – email is our preferred method of communication with you. We would also like to have a mobile phone number on file so we can reach you quickly in case of a last-minute change to the performance you are ushering.
IS THIS YOU? The most important aspect of the Volunteer Usher position is to be a Goodwill Ambassador for Act II Playhouse. We are looking for Volunteers with an upbeat, friendly, can-do attitude who can enthusiastically welcome our Patrons back to our theater!
DUTIES Prior to the performance, Usher duties may include but are not limited to stuffing programs, scanning tickets, assisting Patrons in finding their seats, running the elevator, and checking for Covid Vaccination cards. Ushers are required to remain approximately 15-20 minutes following the performance to help guide Patrons to the exits and pick up programs, etc. left behind in the theater.
I look forward to seeing you back at the Playhouse soon!
