Volunteers Needed for Winter Shakes 2014


The holiday season was a busy time for all of us. Among other things, there were (in the words of Andy Williams) “parties for hosting, marshmallows for roasting and caroling out in the snow,” and amidst all the hustle and bustle of December, we were busy planning for  Winter Shakespeare! Winter Shakespeare, held at Belmont University’s Troutt Theater, is our first production of 2014 and we need your help to make it a wonderful experience for everyone who attends.

Every night at Winter Shakespeare, a team of 6 or more volunteers works the “Front of House” as Ushers. What do an ushers duties include? Ushering is a responsibility we deeply depend on our volunteers to fill each year. An usher’s nightly duties typically consist of help with the Will-Call desk, operating the merchandise booth, checking tickets, and giving programs at the door. Volunteering is an active and interactive experience! As an usher, you will also help direct people to their seats as well as restrooms or the theatre itself.

Ushers are expected to arrive an hour before each performance they are scheduled to volunteer and are requested to stay until after intermission ends in order to assist with clean-up and storing merchandise supplies. Naturally, shortly after each act of the performance begins and ushering duties have been fulfilled, volunteers may enjoy the performance free of charge!

If you’re interested in volunteering with us (and we promise you’ll have a great time), simply flip your calendar to January 2014 (if you haven’t already) and then email us at volunteers@nashvilleshakes.org with your availability for the following dates. You may sign up for as many nights as you’d like and remember that we depend on our volunteers to help make Winter Shakes great!
