Volunteer Ushers


Our volunteer ushers are the face of The Street and are vital members of our community.

As a volunteer usher, you are responsible for:

  • Welcoming people to The Street
  • Answering patron questions regarding the show and the theatre
  • Showing people to their seats
  • Assisting in ensuring the smooth running of performances and events

As ambassadors for The Street, our volunteers ushers are an approachable team with a passion for live performance. Great communication skills, a proactive mindset, and a keen interest in making an impactful contribution to the arts in Canberra are essential. 

No experience is required, but you must be at least 17 years of age, reliable, able to work as part of a team, enjoy customer service and and able to assist in an emergency. Please be aware that ushers are expected to use the stairs regularly while directing patrons to seats. 

You must attend a mandatory induction session, held every six months, before working your first shift. If you are interested in signing up for 2024, the next round of induction sessions will be held in Feb '24. Email for more information.

If you have any questions or need any assistance, you can email (anytime!) or call 02 6247 1223 between 10am and 3pm.


Volunteer ushers get to experience live performance including theatre, dance, comedy, music and more, while connecting Canberrans to professional theatre made here in the ACT and regions. Additionally, volunteer ushers make a significant contribution to the economy and environment of the business.
