All Volunteer Ushers must:

  • Be 18 years or older.
  • Able to work evenings, weekends, and during “bad” weather.
  • Display a friendly, positive attitude and good manners in any situation.
  • Ability to walk, climb stairs, stand for extended periods of time, and not have a fear of heights.
  • Ability to read tickets in a dark theatre with a flashlight.
  • Be able to fulfill an entire shift, often lasting multiple hours and sometimes late into the evening. 
  • Have a valid email address that is checked frequently and access to the internet.


  • New volunteers will be assigned to a specific volunteer team. 
  • Each team is assigned to work approximately two (2) or three (3) days per month.
  • Teams are assigned to individual shows on a rotating basis, not by day-of-the-week.
  • Events take place all year-round at the Fox, with the majority taking place between September and June.
  • Ushers are asked to prioritize their team’s assignments (and assist assigned events whenever able), however volunteers are also welcome to sign-up to work shows that have not been assigned to their team. 
  • Ushers are expected to log their anticipated attendance for events online at least 10 days prior to the event.


We love our volunteers!  

As a volunteer, you will enjoy several unique benefits, such as: 

  • Enjoying world-class performances and events from the comfort of your own seat (after duties are complete and when seating is available).
  • Complimentary parking when volunteering
  • Complimentary popcorn and fountain sodas at every worked event (and the occasional extra treat!)  
  • Occasional complimentary ticket offers at other 313 Presents venues and local sporting events will be shared to volunteers. 
  • All active volunteers are invited to an annual recognition event with food, fun, and awards. 
  • Opportunity to join exclusive scheduled tours of District Detroit venues.
