Beautiful Oops Usher

Judy Moody Usher

Inside Out & Back Again Usher

"When we usher it brings theater 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
