Arena Stage’s volunteer ushers make up the largest part of the theater’s team and, after the actors, are the team members most visible to the public. They are often the first face a patron sees when attending a play at Arena Stage. They are responsible for the comfort, safety and overall experience of our patrons. As an Arena Stage usher, each person contributes personally to Arena Stage’s professional reputation by making every patron feel welcome and by doing all they can to make their time with us a pleasant and memorable experience.
