Volunteers are the heart of WCT. More than 200 volunteers share their time and skills, donating over 10,000 hours each season.

  • At WCT, our volunteer ushers are assigned a variety of tasks:
  • greeting patrons at the door
  • showing and assisting patrons to their seats
  • checking and ripping ticket stubs
  • selling items at the concession and bar
  • checking patrons’ coats and belongings
  • selling raffle tickets
  • answering patron quesitons
  • ensuring the theatre policies and procedures are followed
  • assisting with building evacuations and safety issues as they arise

We ask that our volunteer ushers commit to ten ushering shifts per season (September-June). Volunteers must attend evacuation and safety training prior to the start of the season.
