30 Years of Ushers


Segerstrom Center for the Arts is always looking for enthusiastic, customer service oriented individuals to become volunteer ushers. Our volunteer ushers provide invaluable services by assisting patrons to their seats, answering questions and most importantly, creating a pleasant and welcoming environment for our patrons. As a volunteer, you will have an opportunity to meet many new people as well as see many quality performances. We value you and your interest and generous donation of time.
