USHERING

Want to get involved but don’t know where to start? Join us as an usher!

Ushering at the theatre is one of the simplest ways to volunteer with us. As an usher, you are responsible for customer service of the audience before, during and after a performance. What this means for “The Hobbit”, for example, is that you greet patrons at the entrance to Keppoch Mountain, assist them between scenes with directional assistance or accessiblity needs, and ensure every need is met, all while enjoying high-quality theatre!

No experience is necessary and introductory training will be provided in late July. Be sure to sign up through the Sign Up button above to be added to our email list for ushers.

Volunteer with us at the Bauer Theatre!

In the summer of 2021, Festival Antigonish welcomed over 100 volunteers to assist in our production of Robin Hood: The Great Escape. We were able to engage with our volunteers with the help of our community theatre organization, Theatre Antigonish, across multiple departments of theatre such as:

  • acting
  • stage management
  • costumes
  • props
  • set construction
  • ushers
  • and more!

 

Theatre Antigonish provides community theatre to Antigonish and the surrounding areas and relies on volunteers for every aspect of the production: acting stage management costumes props ushers sound and lighting digital productions. If you are interested in volunteering with us in any aspect, send an email to boxoffice@festivalantigonish.com
