TIP OF THE WEEK: Summer Usher Outdoor Wear!

If you are working any of our outdoor events this summer, like this Thursday’s Jazz Ambassadors show, please feel free to dress a little more casually. The vest tends to get hot outside! Please feel free to wear a polo shirt or nice blouse with comfortable slacks (though not sweat pants!).

For those of you on the Rain Call for these shifts, if there is indeed weather that causes us to move into the Leighton, please plan on wearing the regular usher attire as the event would be indoors. This also goes for ushers who are on the regular shift. Since you are no longer working outdoors, the vest is back!

TIP OF THE WEEK 2: Summer Classics, now with Spanish Subtitles!

Just wanted to give you a heads-up that the Summer Classics screenings will all have Spanish subtitles at the bottom of the screen. The series is being co-sponsored by the local organization La Casa de Amistad. They have been reaching out to the Hispanic community and promoting the series. This series presents the opportunity for both English speaking patrons and Spanish speaking patrons to enjoy the films together at the Browning.

TIP OF THE WEEK: Rain Calls!

This Summer we will be having a few events outdoors. Each of these events will have a “Rain Call”, in case it rains! Ushers who sign up for these Rain Call shifts will be “on call” for that day. We will contact you by 3:30 PM the day of the event to let you know if we will need you for the evening. If we are expecting rain, we’ll have you come on down as the event will take place in one of our venues instead. The ushers who are signed up for the regular shift for the event will still remain on the event (just they will have to work indoors, as opposed to outdoors!) For any usher who is on a Rain Call shift, you will get ONE hour added to your total yearly hours if the weather is nice and we don’t need your service. There you go! Feel free to test it out in July as there is a Rain Call for July 6th!

TIP OF THE WEEK: Bilingual Ushers!

Soon will be Commencement weekend and we will be having guests from all over the world coming to the Center, many for the first time. Thought it would be a good time to check in with all of you to see who among us is bilingual…or trilingual even. It will be great to know in case we have someone working a shift (Commencement or otherwise) who could help if we have a patron who doesn’t speak English. So please send us an email to let us know what other languages you speak. If it is just English, no need to send an email, I think we’ve got that one covered! Thanks!
