Interested in finding ways to help KCSA other than ushering? Not quite ready for the commitment of being on AdBoard? We now have several schedule-friendly opportunities for our members and fans to get involved and help make Krannert Center an even more student-oriented place! Here are just some of the things we could use help with:

  • Tabling events such as the Volunteer Fair and Krannert Uncorked (we have a SignUpGenius for this if you're interested!)
  • Joining us for board meetings to brainstorm ideas for marketing, general meetings, etc.
  • Writing! Either for our blog or doing an article about us for another campus publication
  • Designing posters
  • Distributing posters and flyers
  • Helping us run the database/general office work
  • Simple word of mouth!

If any of this interests you, please don't hesitate to shoot us an email!

Happy summer, KCSA-ers!

In case you didn't know, Krannert's 2016-17 season has been announced!  Tickets go on sale August 13, with student prices never exceeding $10.

Now, that's a pretty sweet deal, but you can see as many shows as you want for FREE by ushering them.  It's a fairly easy job (you just smile at people, hand out programs, and give directions) and you can pick out the shows you want to see.  Anything from a faculty recital to the Chicago Symphony to the National Circus of the People's Republic of China, totally free!

Browse the calendar, pick out shows for your wishlist, and mark your calendar for the week of August 29, 2016.  That's when we'll start registration for Fall 2016 shows (anything from September through December).

Remember that in order to be eligible to usher, you must be a KCSA member (which is free; we're a student organization, after all!) and complete our usher training on Compass.  It should only take about 30min or so and actually has really helpful information (like where the bathrooms are/what to do in an emergency).

This page explains how to join better than I can, so check it out.

Remember that you can email us at, or private message us via our Facebook, if you have any questions!

Thank Falstaff it's Friday.

Woot woot!  The Spring 2016 Signup is now available to all members!

You guys have been doing GREAT so far filling up those shows.  The first few performances of the semester are completely filled, and most of the high-profile shows are either full or have a substantial number of ushers.

If you didn't manage to get into a show you wanted, don't fret!  All is not lost.  Check back...a lot.  Stalk the page, especially on the day of the show.  Shows that are completely full tend to have at least a couple of cancellations last-minute.  I'll keep checking the list for shows that are full and update our FB and Twitter whenever there's a vacancy.

Also, console thy arts-loving heart with this: the main reason we give out usher points is to stagger registration.  People with more points get access to the link earlier.  So the more shows you usher now, the more likely you are in the future to get into the more popular spots.  We all have to start from somewhere, right?

Be sure to contact us at if you have any questions or problems, or if you're new and wanna get in on all this ushering fun!

Hope to see you around Krannert Center!
