If the heart of GCB is our dancers, then it could be said the soul of GCB is our committees. Without parent volunteers chairing and serving, we would not be able to afford this production — nor would we enjoy all of the extra programs and services that make the entire Nutcracker experience so special.
Each family is required to Sign Up for at least (3) shifts, and we encourage everyone to try out each committee at least once!
Due to the popularity of this committee, each family is limited to two usher volunteer spots for the entire production. If you sign up to usher, you are required to sign up for at least one spot on a different committee. All ushers must be at least 21 years old. Volunteers should be prepared and able to walk up and down multiple flights of stairs in the theater, often under poorly lit conditions. At least one male usher per show is needed for bathroom management during intermission – at some point, we open the men’s bathroom for women (yep, we do!). Dress code is white shirts or sweaters, and black pants or skirts. Usher badges are provided so you are easily identifiable. Please do not bring anyone (especially children) with you to usher.
