There is perhaps no better way to be a part of the exciting new arts season than literally ushering it in as a volunteer usher welcoming patrons and guiding them to their seats. The Broward Center for the Performing Arts is holding orientations in September for volunteer opportunities at the Broward Center and its affiliated venues.

Members of the dynamic volunteer usher corps enjoy comradery and expand their horizons during performances of Broadway blockbusters, regional companies and the biggest names in music, comedy and dance. The corps is made up of local arts lovers including high school students who are eligible for community service hours, retired seniors and family members that volunteer together.

Volunteers commit to a regular weekly evening or matinee shift for a full season at the Broward Center, The Parker, the Rose & Alfred Miniaci Performing Arts Center at Nova Southeastern University and the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center.

Interested applicants must submit an application prior to attending an orientation. Orientations will be held in the Au-Rene Theater at the Broward Center on Tuesday, September 12 at 6 p.m. and Thursday, September 28 at 6 p.m. Ushers who attend one of those orientations may also attend an orientation at The Parker that is specific to that venue on Wednesday, September 13 at 6 p.m.

Applications are available on line at, by emailing or calling 954.468.2684. The Broward Center for the Performing Arts is located at 201 SW Fifth Ave. in Fort Lauderdale.
