+ Supernumeraries

Supernumeraries, or "supers," are like "extras" in movie and film, and are an important part of our stage productions. We cast supernumeraries each year, and each production offers unique opportunities to participate. All 2019 season supernumerary positions have been filled. Please check back for information on 2020 season supernumerary auditions.

+ Music Hall Ushering

Ushers make it possible for patrons to have a truly enjoyable Music Hall experience by providing a smile, a friendly greeting, accurate directions, or an extra service. Usher candidates are reviewed by Cincinnati Arts Association. Click here to learn more about how to become a Music Hall usher.
