Thank you for your interest in employment at Studio Theatre. Studio is a unique workplace, one that combines the ambitions of an accomplished arts organization with the agility of a midsized theatre, small enough to foster a real sense of community among our staff and dynamic enough to remain an important force in the theatre scene, both in DC and nationally. Every member of our staff contributes to this work, helping us meet our many deadlines and challenges with ingenuity and passion. Studio Theatre is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
Thank you for your interest in ushering at Studio Theatre. Studio has a dedicated group of over 200 volunteer ushers. They perform some of the most integral jobs in the theatre on a show-by-show basis—greeting patrons, collecting tickets and directing patrons to their seats. We couldn't do it without them. Ushering is the easiest way to see Studio's award-winning shows for free.
All ushers are entitled to a free seat to every show that they usher. Please note that these seats are given on a space-available basis. On the rare occasions that there are no available seats, all ushers are entitled to one complementary ticket to a performance of their choice for that same show.
Ushers are required to wear all black business casual attire and closed toed shoes.
Volunteer ushers are assigned to one of the following positions by the House Manager:
Greet patrons as they enter the building and help direct them to the Box Office, theatres, bookstore or concessions.
Scan tickets and direct patrons to the correct area of the theatre to be seated.
Hand out programs and usher patrons to their seats.
Check coats, bags, and other items for patrons in the Kogod Lobby. (Note: Coat Check is a free service provided for the patrons. No money or tips are accepted at the Coat Check.)
