Usher for Badjelly the Witch

Tim Bray Theatre Company
Events | Both/Flexible | Takapuna
2 July 2022 to 23 July 2022

Our volunteer ushers are an integral part of our show crew, and we love having them join our front of house team. The role involves vacuuming the theatre and foyer before and after the shows, showing audience members to their seats, watching the shows while helping audience members come and go safely as required, helping evacuate the audience during an emergency, and assisting with poster sales after the show. Lunch is provided for our volunteers.

Requirements:

For Health and Safety reasons, volunteers must be over age 16. We would be willing for a capable 13+ year old to come and volunteer alongside a parent, however. Our main requirement is if you sign up for a shift, you are counted on to be there, so communication is essential if you are unable to attend. This job is suitable for wheelchair users, and can be adapted for volunteers with disabilities. You are welcome to bring a carer or assistant to help you on your volunteer shift. We do require a good understanding of English, and the ability for you or your carer/assistant to communicate well in English in case of an emergency. Our audience members are predominately children of all backgrounds and abilities, so enjoyment of working with young kids is expected.

Time commitment:

Our preference is for ushers to sign up to do a full week - if not more! Single day and multi day sign ups are also available if a full week is not possible.
Times are 9:30am - 2:30pm, Monday-Saturday, plus our Gala Opening. Our show is in the last week of the school term and both weeks of the July school holidays.
Week 1: Gala Opening 2 July from 3:30pm-7:00pm, and 4-9 July from 9:30am-2:30pm
Week 2: 11-16 July from 9:30am-2:30pm
Week 3: 18-23 July from 9:30am-2:30pm
