The Ushers Volunteer Guild
Ushers play a pivotal role at Flat Rock Playhouse. Participants have the chance to usher at every show during The Flat Rock Playhouse Season on the Leiman Family Mainstage. Responsibilities include greeting and assisting guests, scanning tickets, distributing programs, providing helpful insight to the grounds, and light clean up after shows. The program is dues-based and requires training prior to the first volunteer shift. Flat Rock Playhouse also provides a rewards system: the more shows you volunteer, the more perks you earn!
The usher program is wildly popular, and we are grateful for such generous support. To reserve a spot on our waiting list and learn more about ushering contact Ushers@Flatrockplayhouse.org.
