Join our team as a VTF Volunteer!

Thank you for your interest in volunteering as an usher for the Virginia Theatre Festival! Each year, our dedicated volunteers donate their time during VTF’s summer season to help us prep our lobby and welcome our patrons to our shows. During their shifts, ushers typically scan tickets, help patrons to their seats, hand out playbills, and support concession sales. We could not do what we do each year without our volunteers’ energetic help and continued support.

Interested in volunteering? Fill out our 2024 Volunteer Interest Form to send us your contact information and availability today!

For questions, please email Rob at rbd8k@virginia.edu.


Age: The minimum age to volunteer is 18.

Training: All volunteer ushers are expected to attend a training session held prior to their first shift, date and time TBD.
