Become an Usher at Parkway Playhouse!

Parkway Playhouse’s 69th Season will commence with performances of Disney’s Cinderella KIDS, performed by Parkway Playhouse Junior Students, on April 24th and 25th.  Those two performances are the first of over fifty scheduled Parkway Playhouse performances in 2015.  The theatre will attract thousands of visitors and residents of the Western North Carolina region to Burnsville.  With a busy season ahead, volunteer ushers at Parkway Playhouse will most certainly be in the spotlight.  Currently, Parkway Playhouse is looking for volunteers who would be interested in serving as an usher during the 2015 Season.

Parkway Playhouse ushers arrive with the cast and crew and join in getting the theatre ready before each performance. Ushers help people find their seats, distribute Playbills, and answer questions.  At intermission they make sure audiences who desire refreshments or a glass of wine get timely service.  Each usher also has their own assigned seat during the performance, which they get to watch without having to purchase a ticket.


For more information about becoming an usher for the 2015 Season at Parkway Playhouse call Kirsten Livengood, Parkway Playhouse’s General Manager at 828-682-4285 or Jan Scott, at 828-682-3581.
