This summer, as we gear up for next season, we want to get you further involved with the Lyric Stage family. On Saturday, July 18, there will be an Usher Orientation from 10:30-11:30am right here at the theater. We will introduce you to the Lyric staff and House Management team, review ushering procedures, and provide a sneak peek at our upcoming season.
We encourage all interested in becoming an usher to attend the Orientation-- both our seasoned volunteers and those joining us for the first time-- as it is important to the Lyric Stage that all of our staff stay up-to-date on our procedures and policies.
According to theater policy, all ushers must arrive one hour before curtain, wearing all black or black and white. Ushers must be physically able to stand for 30-45 minutes at a time, walk up and down stairs, navigate the theatre, and provide assistance to our patrons as needed. You will be trained by our house management staff prior to your selected performance. Please note that we require ushers not wear jackets or hold bags/purses while working - you will be able to store your items securely with our staff.
Ushers will be seated in available seats for their chosen performance, subject to availability. Please note that while we will do our very best to ensure ushers will be able to sit in a seat, should a performance sell out in its entirety, ushers may have to stand or avail themselves of folding chairs in the back of the house. If you have any questions or concerns about these requirements, please call us at the box office at 617.585.5678.
Please plan to arrive at the theatre at least 1 hour prior to show time. If you will be late, please call the box office at to let us know. Ushers who are more than 15 minutes late for ushering without notifying the box office may not be allowed to usher.
If for any reason you will be unable to usher with us, please call the box office to cancel as soon as possible, preferably with at least 48 hours notice, so we may adequately prepare for the performance.
All ushers must be signed up under their own name and provide a contact phone number and e-mail address, where possible. We regret that we are unable to reserve an ushering space without contact information.
