Volunteer at the Arts Center
Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the ECC Arts Center. Due to our recent renovation, we have paused our usher application process and, as a result, are not accepting new ushers at this time. Questions? Contact our Front-of-House Office at 847-214-7586.
About Our Volunteer Usher Program
ECC Arts Center ushers not only get to experience the shows they volunteer for, but they also earn points to receive free tickets to future events.
Time Commitment: Ushers choose from a variety of performances that fit their personal schedules. With nearly 150 performances that take place 45 weeks out of the year, there are many opportunities to volunteer. You get to choose how often you volunteer and we do our best to match you with your preferred performances.
Usher Requirements: Ushers must be 16 years or older and attend an usher orientation session.
