The Robert Ames Alden Theatre

Is a cultural resource for the citizens of McLean that presents high-quality performances, lectures and educational programs for audiences of all ages.



Volunteer at the Alden!

Want to be a part of the arts? Want to get involved in your community? Are you a teen, age 16 or older, who needs community service hours for school? Retired and looking for something fun to do? The Alden is looking for volunteers to serve as ushers during its performances. If you are interested in ushering at the Alden, fill out a volunteer form online or at the Center's reception desk.

Join us for one of our upcoming usher orientation events:

Wednesday, Aug. 31, 6:45 p.m.


The Alden Usher Meet and Greet is a casual meet-up event for anyone interested in volunteer ushering at the Alden.


Please help us kick off our new 2016-17 season of national and international touring artists with good friends and tasty treats. Those volunteering for the first time will receive a brief orientation and learn how to sign up for performances. Come to meet all of our wonderful ushers, sign up for our breathtaking performances and enjoy refreshments and backstage tours.


Please gather in the lobby between 6:45 and 7 p.m. Volunteers will be escorted to the greenroom for the start of the meeting.

To attend please email Jeff Virchow.

For more information, contact Jeff Virchow, Performing Arts Coordinator.
