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. We hope that your company will consider ushering for a brand new show that will benefit the not-for-profit CAC and 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.
Please decide on the performance(s) your group wishes to usher for and have each team member sign up individually.
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.
What will your team do as ushers? 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 further promote your participation. Children of employees in Middle or High School may usher with you, but unfortunately younger children will not be able to be a part of your team.
