Ushers' Toolkit‎ > ‎

Dress Code

The goal is to look professional, part of the ushering team, not to call attention to yourself.

With one exception, clothing, including scarves, must be solid black. The exception is a solid white shirt/blouse/top, which is covered by a black jacket. Sleeveless clothing must also be covered with a jacket or sweater. Jacket and tie are required for men. Skirts should be knee-length or longer.

Shoes and boots should be black and plain. No open-toed shoes, no lace-up boots.

Badges, worn near the shoulder, must be visible while on duty. While off-duty (using phone, eating, reading, etc.), badges should be removed.

For every position a flashlight and pen or pencil is required.

Bags and headwear:
Black bags smaller than 10 by 10 inches may be worn. Larger bags, hats, and caps should be stored in a closet.

In cold positions black coats may be worn.

Any fragrance must be subtle enough to avoid attracting attention from people nearby.
