Loew’s Jersey Call for volunteer ushers(12/1)
JERSEY CITY, NJ – On Saturday evening, December 1st, the Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre will be hosting a Holiday Concert – volunteer ushers are still needed to “work” this live show. With the busy winter holiday season upon us, finding extra help at this time of year is always difficult.
However, ‘tis the season…for giving – with this thought in mind, the theatre is asking its patrons and others for support by donating their time, effort and enthusiasm to make this show a success. In return, as a special “thank you”, all volunteers scheduled to work that evening are invited to see the show for free (tickets are valued at $50 to $65 per seat)! Each volunteer staffer is also allowed to bring a guest helper along, so they can take part too (additional assistance is appreciated).
If you (or anyone you know) are interested and would like to assist with ushering, please contact the theatre in advance by calling (201) 798-6055 or by e-mailing a message to (attention: Patricia Giordan, Friends of the Loew’s). Please provide the following personal contact information regarding you and your guest (if applicable): full names, telephone numbers and return e-mail addresses – so that your name(s) can be confirmed and added to the volunteer roster. Advance notice is necessary in order to determine staffing needs and establish a head count.
All scheduled volunteer ushers are requested to report and sign-in at about 6:00 PM. To enter, ring the doorbell at the main entrance and identify yourself. Only authorized volunteers, staff and show personnel will be admitted. Upon arrival, names will be checked against the list and ID tags issued.
Doors will open to the general public at 6:45 PM, show time is 7:45 PM sharp, and the concert should end at about 11:30 PM. There will be an intermission around 9:30 PM. Ushers will assist patrons before the show, during intermission and at the conclusion of the show. All ushers will be on call during the show and are expected to be available for assistance upon request
The theatre does not provide formal usher uniforms. Therefore, to be easily identifiable to patrons and other staff, all volunteers are asked to maintain a smart, uniform appearance by adhering to the following dress code:
– dress shirt, blouse or vest (in dark red/burgundy, red, white or black)
– dark-colored trousers, pants or skirt (i.e. black, navy blue)
– dark-colored dress shoes (i.e. black or similar) that are comfortable!
– official ID nametag (issued by Friends of the Loew’s)

The theatre itself has a VERY limited amount of adjacent complimentary parking for volunteer and staff vehicles (special permit required).
