Student Usher Program

Do you like theatre? Do you need volunteer hours? Do you want to see shows for free?
We are looking for responsible and reliable high school students to join our volunteer roster of Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall Ushers!
You work a show, you get to see that show AND you get your volunteer hours!
Student Usher opportunities vary through the season and require a short orientation in the fall.

Technical Theatre Summer Camp

In partnership with the stagehands’ union local #412, kids aged 12-18 will work with skilled union technicians in hands-on activities that will open their minds to complexities and possibilities of a life in the theatre that’s behind the scenes. With unprecedented access to the corners of the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall that the audience never sees, participants will learn from the people who truly know the “business of show”.
