GLIMMERGLASS WELCOMES NEW VOLUNTEERS
The Glimmerglass Festival could not hold its world-renowned summer season each year if not for its volunteers. There are many ways you can assist, whether year-round or seasonally, nearby or across the country.
For further volunteer opportunities, consider joining the Glimmerglass Festival Guild.
Note Regarding 2021 festival:
Due to additional regulations and safety protocols necessary to host the 2021 Festival, the Festival is unable to accept volunteers this year. Please check back for information regarding the 2022 Festival.
BECOME A GLIMMERGLASS USHER
The Glimmerglass Festival relies on its many volunteers to serve as ambassadors of the company by ushering at performances during the summer. Glimmerglass ushers take tickets, assist in seating audience members, and most importantly, welcome our audience members with smiling faces.
If you are interested in volunteering as an usher for the upcoming festival, please send us an email to sign up to receive more information. We always welcome new faces, so if you know of anyone who may be interested in being a volunteer usher, please have them be in touch as well. Further information about ushering this summer will be sent out in the spring.
BASIC POLICIES FOR USHERING AT GLIMMERGLASS:
- Each usher is expected to arrive at least one hour and 15 minutes before curtain time for sign in, a brush-up orientation and preparation.
- Each usher is expected to remain on duty until the end of the performance.
- Dress for ushers consists of a white shirt or blouse and black (or navy blue) trousers or skirt. Formal designs are more appropriate than sporty ones. Remember, the house is not climate controlled, so be prepared for inclement weather. Sweaters and vests should also be black, white, or navy blue.
Ushers must be at least 18 years old.
