Magic Theatre has a large group of dedicated volunteers that work with us each season which we value as an important part of our theatre family. There are ushering opportunities available for every show of our current and upcoming productions!
Ushers are required to arrive at the theatre one hour before curtain and must be dressed in all black. Duties may include:
• stuffing programs
• tearing tickets
• assisting patrons to their seats
• assisting with operating concessions or merchandise counters
• light clean-up of the theatre after the performance
In return, ushers are able to see the show free of charge in some of the best seats in the house. They also get 50% off at Magic Theatre Concessions Lounge. The schedule can be arranged at your convenience!
To become part of our volunteer usher team and to schedule a time to work with us please contact the Magic Theatre Box Office.
Please Note: In order to usher with us you must confirm a shift on a specific date. Magic Theatre does not have a lot of room for storage of personal belongings during your ushering shift, so please come with as few personal belongings as possible (large bags, backpacks, laptops, suitcases, and grocery bags are all difficult to accommodate). Small purses are acceptable.

Why a Gala?
From its ambitious beginnings in 1967, Magic Theatre has developed a reputation as a cultural hot spot in the San Francisco Bay Area, committed to developing bold new plays, playwrights, and audiences. Located in San Francisco’s historic Fort Mason Center, Magic Theatre is honored that many of our artists first produced here have gone on to great heights and incredible success: Christina Anderson accepted the 2017 Harper Lee Award, recognizing extraordinary women in American theatre, Tarell Alvin McCraney won an Academy Award for his adapted screen play Moonlight, and Taylor Mac was just honored with the MacArthur Genius Award.
These playwrights not only inspired our audiences, but have gone on to share their message with millions. In order to continue supporting talented artists, this year, we will be holding our Spring Fundraising Celebration – Magic Gala.
The evening includes a hosted reception, decadent dining, and an auction at the end of the night. We look forward to your support and participation in this year’s Spring Fundraising Celebration.
With you, we make Magic.
