Earn Free Adult Classes: Usher or Work the Spotlight

Ushers make performances possible! You’ll meet other people who enjoy theatre, and get to see *most* of the show for free! After you usher for four performances, you’ll earn full tuition for an upcoming six-week adult class. To apply, send a brief email to marketing@theatrelab.org with your name, ushering experience (if any) and we’ll let you know about upcoming opportunities. Ushers should be prepared to arrive at the venue at 45 minutes before showtime and stay through intermission.

Spotlight operators brighten each performance! We’ll provide full-training to people who would like to learn. Spotlight operators will gain skills that can be used on a technical theatre resume, and meet other members of the production team. If you successfully work spotlight for a run of one show, you’ll get free tuition for a single six-week adult class in an upcoming session.

Want to work-study with a friend or neighbor? No problem, when you apply for this position, make sure they submit their contact information too and we can consider your applications together. To apply for this work-study role, email Angelo Merenda: angelo@theatrelab.org.
