The Barre Opera House accepts volunteers year round to fill its usher corps and provides training each fall for new recruits before the season begins.

Joining the Barre Opera House Usher Corps is a great way to support Central Vermont’s premier performing arts center and an opportunity to see wonderful shows at no cost.

Ushers are expected to arrive 60 minutes prior to curtain time to prepare for the show and to receive assignments, which include passing out programs, taking tickets, showing patrons to their seats, and helping with concessions and merchandise sales.

We ask our ushers to sign up for at least three performances each half of the season (6 total shows for the year), including one spring dance recital. We desire responsible individuals who will honor their volunteering commitment. Job requirements include the ability to climb stairs and stand for extended periods of time. All ushers must also be at least 14 years of age.

The Opera House communicates with our ushers primarily by email. Familiarity with and access to a computer, with the ability to access the internet, navigate web pages and forms, open PDF files is helpful.

Those interested in ushering can contact us at 476-0293 or Projects@barreoperahouse.org 


Hanging posters in your community is a great way to tell your neighbors about upcoming Barre Opera House performances. If you can commit to hanging a few posters for each of our performance in designated locations we would love your help.



Everybody loves a great meal! Many of our Barre Opera House presented performers need a delicious prepared meal to enjoy in their dressing room before they go on stage. If you are an experienced cook who can deliver a hot meal at a specified date and time we'd love to have your help. Due to our lack of kitchen equipment we require food to be fully cooked prior to delivery.
