"When we usher it brings theatre to life and gives our kids the opportunity to feel they are making art possible. When we typically attend performances we’re passively engaged; this usher program gives our children an opportunity for the kids to DO something and make the performance possible. Ushering gives them a feeling of leadership with simple, clear responsibility that allows them to guide both adults and children. It calls upon their capacity in a different/unique way. And the goodies at the end were great, too!" - Andrew Gaines, parent
