Purple Rose Volunteers

As a nonprofit, we rely on the generosity of others to help us carry out our efforts. It’s that effort, however big or small, that goes directly to helping our theatre grow! There are two volunteer teams that you can join at the PRTC: Ushering or Development/Event Volunteers!


The Purple Rose welcomes volunteer ushers throughout the season! We ask all ushers to arrive one hour before show time to assist our House Manager, help patrons to their seats, and manage coat check during the winter months. This is a wonderful way to help your favorite non-profit theatre and see a show for free!

You may sign up for usher positions as soon as general ticket sales begin for each show.

Call (734) 433-7673 or email Tickets@PurpleRoseTheatre.org to secure your date.

We can use 2-4 ushers per performance.

Thank you to all of our volunteer ushers! You serve a valuable role in assuring an enjoyable and unforgettable theatre experience for our patrons.
