    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.

    Sampson Theater seeks website advice

    PENN YAN, NY — The Sampson Theater is looking for ideas and thoughts on designing a website for our theater restoration project. We are a small, grass roots organization and do not have a substantial budget to work with. We would like to introduce the world to our 1910 vaudeville house which is in the process of being converted for use by our local theater group and need an eye catching web presence to do so.

    Do you have experience with such a “ground up” type effort? Did you build a web presence from scratch? What worked well for you? What should we avoid?

    For direct comment, please contact Sandi at Many thanks!
