Volunteer at GCT

What can I do?

In addition to cast and crew needs, we are always in search of great volunteers to help around the theatre, building sets and props, ushering our shows, and helping to organize or mend our stock of costumes.

USHERING

We are using Signup Genius to coordinate ushers. Click the button below to help with the next show!

GCT has defined 2 types of ushers going forward. PLEASE READ BEFORE PICKING A SLOT!

“Concession Ushers” arrive at least an hour before show time to get a quick and easy training on our Ipad & card reader. We ask that these ushers be 21 or older and comfortable handling wine, beer and money. Duties include helping during pre-show time and the rush at intermission. House manager will set up and close down concessions. It’s easier than you think and a lot of fun! 

“Will Call Ushers” greet patrons at the audience entrance and pass out playbills. You may be asked to help with will-call tickets if the House Manager has to solve a problem or do a transaction to keep the line going. These ushers should be 16 or older. (Younger helpers are welcome if you have participated in our classes and camps and get permission. Please arrive at least 45 minutes before showtime and help scan the theatre for paper & cup trash after the show. 

Dress is casual but we prefer no holes in pants or branding logos and phrases on tops. Check in at box office with house manager when you arrive and pick up a volunteer name tag to wear and return it before leaving. 

Each usher has a FREE SEAT for the show so please let us know in advance if you will either not need it or want to purchase adjoining seats for your loved ones.

We now require email and phone for sign up. PLEASE let us know ahead of time if you won’t be able to attend. Review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Thank you!
