Once you have arrived you can talk to our ushers in the foyer. Daniel Olmarker is one of the ushers and is often there to assist you. He is proud of the ushers’ knowledge: “We know what mobility aids are available and how they function. All you need to do is ask,” he says. “Also, we are all trained in CPR. At each performance we always have at least one person present who knows how to use the defibrillator.”
