General Building Information
  • If a patron complains about seat(s), or needs disability seating send them to the Box Office. Remember, we can’t fix what we don’t know about.
  • If a patron calls to complain the day after a show, the first question we ask is, “Did you go to the box office during the show?”

  • There are no pay phones in the building. If a patron needs to make a phone call, send them to the Adams Center Administration Office.

  • Regardless of your specific responsibilities, orient yourself to the nearest restroom, concession stand, smoking section, merchandise stand and beer stand so you can provide that information if asked.

Event Staff Guidelines
  • In the event the building is evacuated, use the nearest exit.
  • As you exit, be calm and call to patrons to follow you to the nearest exit.
  • Then meet up with all other workers (local crew) in the parking lot across from the student entrance of the Adams Center.

(NOTE: If you Usher or you are Security Staff you may be assigned more specific responsibilities.)

  • If you are involved in or witness an incident in which someone falls, is injured or the facility is damaged fill out an Adams Center incident report .

  • Never seek out or interact with the artist(s) / performer(s) unless they approach and speak to you first; and even then - never ask for an autograph.

  • Catering is set up for the artist and their road crew do not eat the catered meals unless you are invited to do so by a member of the tour; and then double check with the Concert Coordinator or UMP Director.

  • Anything you use in the building is to be returned to the place where you found it, or where it belongs. If you picked it up, do not rely on someone else to replace it – do it yourself.
  • Ask for clarification, help, or direction if you are unsure about anything.

Event Staff Guidelines
  • All sound checks are closed. Do not sit or loiter on the floor, in seating areas, or vomitories during sound check.
  • Do not leave your post for a restroom break during busy times.

Event Staff Guidelines
  • From the time of load-in to load-out do not go down onto the arena floor level unless your specific job requires you to be there.
  • The Backstage area is for the convenience and use of the artist and the touring crew. Think of the backstage as their home on the road. Please respect their privacy.

Event Staff Guidelines

Credentials are issued to you so you can come to work the show. Credentials are not to be passed onto another person.

  • Backstage access passes are only issued by the tour, not by the Adams Center.

  • Make your interactions with everyone – artist, producer, student athlete, or ticket holder – professional, courteous, and respectful.

  • Do not expect to be able to watch the show; your compensation is a wage not a free show.
  • Assist anyone (fellow crew member, touring crew, or patron) who appears to be in need of help.

  • Arrive for your shift 5 minutes before your shift starts and be ready to go to work.

  • If a radio is checked out to you, you are responsible for checking it back in before leaving the building. Know the “channel guide.” (Custodial, Event Staff, Fire Watch, & Uniformed Officers each have their own channel.) Make all radio communiqué brief – cute, clever and funny are not cool on radio transmissions.
  • One channel is also designated as a “Conversation Channel” if you need to have an extended exchange.
