We would like to offer your employees and their families the opportunity to serve their community and see a free performance in exchange for ushering the show. I hope that you might be able to help us recruit volunteers from your company. Your employees may wear your branded shirts to promote your participation.
In this period of unprecedented world challenges, the Circus Arts Conservatory (parent of Circus Sarasota and The Sailor Circus) has not forgotten the healing power of The Arts. With that in mind, we are producing a brand new show to benefit our community outreach programs. "Prevail" will feature top artists from around the world, many coming directly to us from Cirque Du Soleil.
Prevail plays March 5-7 and March 12-14 at the Sailor Circus Arena on Bahia Vista St, just east of Tamiami Trail.
The complete schedule and available usher shifts can be found on our Volunteer Sign Up Page.
Your group may sign up as part of a company team or as individuals.
We take safety VERY seriously and have strict protocols in place to protect our audience, ushers and staff.
Please visit this link to read about how your team will be protected.
Ushers will greet and safely direct patrons to their seats. Though officially "on-duty" throughout the show, ushers may sit and enjoy the performance. Afterwards, ushers will help clear and then clean the arena stands. In the event of an emergency, ushers will help patrons exit the arena quickly and safely. Arrival time is 90 minutes prior to performance. Attire are black business pants or skirt, comfortable closed-toe shoes, and a volunteer name tag that we will supply. Your volunteers may wear a white dress shirt or your company's branded shirts to promote your participation. Children of employees in Middle or High School may usher with their parents, but unfortunately younger children will not be able to be a part of the team.
