    No previous experience is necessary. We are looking for volunteers with an interest and passion for theatre. Our volunteers are reliable, committed, friendly, courteous, and respectful with our patrons. In return, volunteers receive a range of perks, including complimentary performance tickets, special discount offers, appreciation events, and more.

    Our volunteer ushers are critical to the smooth operations of each performance. Duties may include:

    • Greeting patrons as they arrive
    • Assisting in checking patron tickets and answering questions
    • Assisting patrons with finding their seating location
    • Monitoring patrons and the theatre space during the performance
    • Supporting with post performance theatre clean up
    • Be an ambassador for Tarragon Theatre and answer patron questions pertaining to Tarragon and its programming
