Usher Opportunities at Merrill Auditorium

UPDATE: Please note as of August 2019, due to the large amount of active volunteer ushers we have, we are currently not accepting new ushers.

If you would like to be placed on a wait list for new volunteer ushers, please email our usher coordinator at chris@portlandmaine.gov

Thank you!!

If you are looking for an opportunity to participate in the arts, meet and spend time with different people, and be a part of Portland’s first rate facility, Merrill Auditorium, becoming an usher is your ticket in!

We are always looking for interested people who would like to become ushers. We have a wide variety of events at Merrill that you can assist us by ushering.

Usher Requirements


  • New ushers are required to attend a two hour training session which will cover topics such as evacuation and customer service.
  • There is a required dress code which is included in the guidelines which you will receive at the training.
