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 1 hour before and staying 15 minutes after play performances, the ability to stand for 30 minutes at a time 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.
To become an usher at Actors Theatre, you must first attend a training session. The next new usher training session dates are:
Monday, February 6, 6:00-8:00 pm
Saturday, February 11, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
These sessions will take place at Actors Theatre, 316 W. Main St., Louisville, KY 40202. You only have to attend one session and RSVP is not required.
