Get Involved




The Performance Center depends upon community and campus members to assist us in serving our patrons. The most common service provided by volunteers is working as ushers before and during our events. To learn more about how you can get to see great live performances, assist your fellow community members, and meet great arts lovers, please email

We are currently signing up volunteers for the 2016-17 season. Review the list below indicating dates/shows where we are still seeking volunteers for ushering and other hosting opportunities. Thank you! We really can’t do this work without your help.
