See performances for free by becoming a volunteer usher with the University Theatre & University Dance Company!

Under the supervision of a staff house manager, our volunteer ushers greet patrons, take tickets, hand out programs, and assist patrons in finding their seats. Ushers watch the performance and assist in the unlikely event of disruptions or emergencies. 

Priority for ushering assignments is given to KU Students, but community members are also welcome to join the ushering corps.

For more information or to volunteer, please visit the University Theatre Box Office or contact the Managing Director at

Our volunteer ushers are very important to us. Please visit the Usher Hall of Fame to see some of the best.
