Common Clown Festival

The Pumphouse Theatre is looking for volunteer ushers for each night, and two matinees, of the upcoming Common Clown Festival.

Volunteers get to see the shows for free!

Ushers are expected to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of their shift.

Ushers will be trained on appropriate safety procedures and their individual roles (ripping tickets, passing out programs, assisting patrons to their seats). Ushers are expected to stay until the theatre has been vacated—approximately three hours. Shows vary in runtime each night, and therefore the indicated end-time may change. We will be needing two to three ushers for each night.

For more information and to sign up for a spot, visit

Ushers and volunteers are not required to wear any particular colour or style of clothing. Heels are not recommended.

If you have questions or concerns please contact Kelly Malcolm, Programming Director, at 403.263.0079 ext 100 or at

Thank you all for your help and we look forward to having you join us for the festival!

Common Clown Festival, March 9 – 13, 2022
