Become A Volunteer Usher!

Filed under: News — Tags: , — Deborah Singletary @ 5:49 pm


We call it loving the audience into the theater.

You know what I love to do more than anything? Ushering for our shows. Meeting the patrons and escorting them to their seats is fun for me.

If you decide to be a volunteer usher, you get to see the show for free.

Here's how it works:

What to Wear: black or black and white.

Report time:     11:30 a.m. for the 1 p.m. show (house opens at Noon)

Let us know you're coming: Call 212-280-1045 (Ask for Jillian) or email
