Become an Usher
The impression an audience member receives upon his or her arrival is key. A thoughtful and respectful staff is one of the more lasting impressions taken away from the Aronoff Center. It is the Ushers who make it possible for the patron to have a truly enjoyable night on the town by providing a friendly greeting, accurate directions and a smile.
All ushers must complete the three-part training program to be ACTIVE ushers:
1. General OrientationOrientations are typically held bi-annually, in January and August. These orientations offer an overview of the commitment required of an usher, and an in-depth look at the volunteer program. At the conclusion of the orientation, the prospective usher can then schedule for step 2, Volunteer in Training.
2. Volunteer In Training (VIT)The prospective volunteer must complete two events as a Volunteer-In-Training. A VIT is paired with a training buddy (an experienced volunteer) who has agreed to assist with the training process. Upon completion of these two VIT events, ushers receive an official volunteer name badge and may schedule future events along with the rest of our active volunteers.
3. Emergency Procedures Training
After completion of the general orientation, we hold a specific training to review evacuation routes, severe weather procedures, seating issues, and dress. All new ushers must attend within a year of the general orientation date to remain active.
