USHER INFO Thank you for helping us out tonight. Your duties are as follows: Ticket collection – when directed by the front of house manager that the house is open, please stand at the entry to the hall and rip the small ends off each complimentary ticket, or take the small tickets. These need to be given to the front of house manager before the start of the show so that we can have accurate audience numbers in case of emergency. Audience seating – Seating is general admission, all you need to do is keep them away from reserved seating, and to assist any elderly or disabled patrons who require help. Please do encourage people to sit towards the front. Tea & Coffee – While the tea and coffee table will be a self service area, we ask that you remain near the table to assist patrons where required. Please help to collect used cups in the boxes under the table and generally keep the area clean. In case of emergency… Evacuation – Should we need to evacuate the theatre at any point, our stage manager or production manager, will make the announcement. Then you need to direct the audience back out the front doors and lead them to the evacuation point. It is important that you keep the audience there until the front of house manager does a head count, and until either the front of house manager or emergency services say it is ok for them to leave. Medical emergencies or disruptive audience members – Should any trouble occur with an audience member, please come out to notify the front of house manager who will deal with the issue. We do not expect you to administer first aid or to confront a troublesome audience member. Other info
