Volunteer at San Jose Playhouse

Volunteering as an 
Usher for Events

Ushers perform a vital role as the public face of San Jose Playhouse during our performances and special events ensuring that our patrons have a positive, enjoyable and safe experience. We depend on our volunteer ushers to check tickets and show patrons to their seats, hand out programs, clear and tidy the auditorium after the performance, deal with audience related inquiries and problems, and understand and carry out the evacuation procedure if necessary. In return, ushers may watch our productions and special events for free when serving as an usher, and enjoy one free small popcorn whilst ushering.

To be considered for a Volunteer Usher position, complete the form to select your event/dates for our current season.
