The Ushers Volunteer Guild
Ushers play a pivotal role at Flat Rock Playhouse. The Guild works every show that FRP produces during our season. Ushers are responsible for greeting guests, helping guests to seat their seats, monitoring guests’ behavior during performances, and light clean up after shows. The Ushers Guild is a dues based volunteer group, that also requires training prior to first volunteer shift. The Guild also works on a rewards system; the more shows you volunteer, the more FRP perks you earn!
