Theatre and arts communities all
over the world rely on Volunteer Ushers. Volunteering is recognised as being a
fun and fulfilling way of giving back to a community, and it’s an opportunity
to learn new skills, connect with others and make new friends.
To improve the patron experience
in the Waimakariri District, the Volunteer Ushers program is a new initiative, set
up in partnership between the Friends of the Rangiora Town Hall and the Waimakariri
Ushering for the Rangiora Town
Hall will bring you face to face with the performers and patrons of arts in the
district and allow you to provide a highly valued service in the process.
From dance recitals and competitions, junior theatre, magic shows, musical
performances and school productions, you will be a part of the life and
experience of delivering arts in the Waimakariri.
Community Facilities Coordinator
Simon Kong says “The refurbishment of the Rangiora Town Hall has given the 91-year-old
building a new lease of life. The upgrade, which added features like
large foyer toilets, proper dressing rooms and modern ventilation, has made the
building an attractive venue to showcase local performing arts performances and
shows to the district”.
Since re-opening in 2015 the
Town Hall has seen a rapid uptake in bookings. After completing over 60 public
performances days in 2016, bookings for 2017 have already exceeded this
While the Town Hall has been a fixture of the Rangiora community for a long
time, the refurbishment is seeing the Town Hall flourish as a true multi-use
performing arts destination for the arts community in the district. “Pre-quake
the Town Hall was very much a DIY venue, with hirers providing most of the
internal support for managing shows”.
“The refurbishment has evolved this experience to a building with better
facilities and features. The introduction of a Volunteer Ushers Program is part
of expanding the patron experience of the Town Hall to match similar experience
at other great venues and theatres”.
Anyone can become a volunteer usher. To discover how you can support your
Waimakariri performing arts community, come along to the Rangiora Town Hall
Function Room on Sunday 2 April at 3.30pm to find out more.
