My grandmother, Rose Edna Wright Foster, said she worked as an usher at the Gayety Theatre. It was probably 1926/1927. She was living at 2427 John R. St., Detroit, with her husband Jasper Beckham Foster and their three daughters; Margaret Louise born 1924; Bonnie Jean born 1925, and Bernice June born 9-27-1926. Rose and Jasper split up the first half of 1927 and nobody has ever known what happened to Bernice June. I can see from the adoption records of Bonnie Jean, that notation was made about Rose working as an usher at the theatre. Does anyone remember her?
