Usher Guidelines

The usher’s primary job is patron assistance, before the performance, during  intermission, and at the end of the show. Ushers need to arrive 1 hour prior to showtime.  

Dress Code
  • Black top/black bottom

Ushers should look professional (business casual). Below are some the minimum guidelines for attire:

  • collared shirt (tie not required)
  • dress pants
  • blouse or nice sweater
  • dress pants, skirt, or dress

Unacceptable items - jeans, t-shirts, sneakers, sandals/flip-flops, sweatshirts/sweat pants, tank tops and shorts. If an usher reports to the venue in apparel that is deemed inappropriate, the usher will be excused.

PLEASE NOTE: A NO CALL/NO SHOW for your ushering appointment will result in the loss of ushering privileges for the remainder of the semester.
