Do you enjoy being at a theatre? Do you want to help a theatre run smoothly? Do you want to see a play for free?! Become a Volunteer Usher at the Hilberry Theatre!
Founded in 1963, the Hilberry Theatre is home to the nation’s first graduate repertory company. This cultural institution presents six classic plays in an 8-month season. The Hilberry has been honored with numerous awards by the Detroit newspapers as well as may individual awards for company members.
Duties include: arriving one hour prior to curtain time, stuffing and distributing programs, tearing tickets, escorting patrons to their seats, ensuring that no concessions (besides water) are brought into the theatre, and picking up programs and trash after the performance has ended. You must also wear black shoes, black slacks or a black skirt, and a white blouse or shirt. Total amount of time per night spent at the Hilberry when ushering a show will usually be no more than four hours. Shows are mostly Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 8 p.m. There are occasional matinee performances on Wednesdays at 2 p.m. and some Saturdays at 2 p.m.
