Ushers assist the House Manager in light duties, which may include scanning tickets, handing out programs, helping people to their seats, selling concessions items, and tidying up the theatre after the show.
All volunteer ushers get to see the show they usher. However, if it sold out and no seats are available, ushers may sit in the lobby and watch the show on live feed.
