Individuals who are at least 16 years of age or older with neat appearance and good communication skills are welcome to apply. You must be comfortable standing and climbing stairs


Volunteering at the Florida Theatre is a privilege. Volunteer ushers are expected to understand the seating arrangements, wear the appropriate attire, take patrons to their (reserved) seats, stand and climb steps, understand event information, direct people to the restrooms and concessions, and help prepare programs for events.

Qualified ushers will scan tickets and direct patrons. Volunteers should be capable of climbing stairs and standing until each show begins and, for sold-out shows, will be required to stand until released from duty. Ushers are not allowed to use cell phones while on duty and are expected to behave professionally while volunteering.

To maintain their active status, volunteers must work at least three events every two months on average and one dance recital annually. Volunteers are also required to attend one orientation training in the first year as a volunteer, and all volunteers, new and returning, are required to attend the annual refresher training held in the summer.


As a volunteer in the newly renovated historic Florida Theatre, you are afforded the opportunity to make lasting friendships, serve the Jacksonville community, and witness art in our historic theatre.

For every hour worked, volunteers gain points they can redeem for show tickets and Florida Theatre merchandise. We also have raffles for a Florida Theatre membership and featured brick under the marquee.

The perks don't stop there - volunteers also receive an invitation to our annual usher appreciation party, annual staff holiday party, and annual summer beach picnic.
