Become a part of Arena Stage by ushering or volunteering. Our success depends on you!
Arena Stage welcomes volunteers in many departments throughout the year. The following is a selection of opportunities available.
Arena Stage’s volunteer ushers make up the largest part of the theater’s staff and, after the actors, are the staff members most visible to the public. You are often the first face a patron sees when attending a play at Arena Stage. You are responsible for the comfort, safety and overall experience our patrons each time you’re here. As an Arena Stage usher, each of you contributes personally to Arena Stage’s professional reputation by making every patron feel welcome and by doing all you can to make their time with us a pleasant and memorable one. There are over 1,500 members of Arena Stage’s ushering staff.
Volunteers receive complimentary tickets to Arena Stage shows (determined by the number of hours worked), invitations to special staff and audience enrichment events and an invitation to a picnic at the end of the season.
