University Theatre


University Theatre is NC State’s volunteer student theatre. As a non-majors program, we provide the opportunity for all students at NC State to participate in theatre. We produce 4-6 productions each academic year and a three show summer Theatrefest, and instruct classes in theatre.




As a student theatre, University Theatre offers students numerous volunteer opportunities to work backstage during productions. We also encourage our community theatre supporters to volunteer. Because of student schedules, we often find ourselves needing additional ushers. If you would like to volunteer to usher and see the shows for free, please contact Nancy Breeding at 919.515.3105


See our current season schedule for dates and times of productions you might volunteer to work.


Usher, University Theatre productions SEE THE VOLUNTEER USHER GUIDELINES
Volunteer ushers are generally first selected from our THE 103 Introduction to Theatre students. Once these interested students have signed on for the productions they will work, we contact other interested students and community members to fill in the unattended positions. All ushering shifts are overseen by University Theatre House Managers. Shows with longer runs offer more ushering opportunities. See the schedule for dates and times.

House manager also meets with show's ushers the night of the preview performance to explain job responsibilities and answer questions. These positions require dependability, responsibility and ability to think on your feet to deal with sensitive situations. Should be amiable, enjoy working with team and helping people. Students who participate in this position will earn lab hours where applicable and a sense of being an important participant in public relations of the theatre.
