Ushering at Actors Theatre

Actors Theatre has a 800+ strong Volunteer Usher Corps, but we’re always looking for new faces! Our ushers work on teams based on availability or preference and most teams usher about once a month.

Requirements include arriving one hour before and staying 15 minutes after play performances and an enthusiasm for theatre. We welcome ushers from age 13 and up. Ushers aged 13-15 must be accompanied by an adult (parent, grandparent, teacher, etc.) to training and when ushering.

Ushers receive discount parking in our secure garage, discounts on play tickets and other events, and of course, seeing the plays free when you usher. Students can receive service hours for ushering.

Usher Training

To become an usher at Actors Theatre, you must first attend a training session. These sessions will take place at Actors Theatre, 316 W. Main St., Louisville, KY 40202. You only have to attend one session and an RSVP is not required.  For more information, contact Allison Hammons, Director of Volunteer & Audience Relations, at 502.584.1265.
