We depend on hundreds of volunteers each year working in the park, in the office, and on special events and projects. Volunteering with the Festival is a fun, social, and rewarding way to support one of St. Louis’ leading arts organizations with your most precious gift: your time.  We welcome you to join us, whether for one night or the entire season!

Audience and Hospitality Services 

Volunteers are essential to creating a rich experience for the audience each season at the mainstage production in Shakespeare Glen, Forest Park, and provide support for events such as Shakespeare in the Streets our annual Gala, just to name a few. As a face of the Festival, you will engage with our guests and help make them feel at home.  


Volunteers occasionally assist staff with mailings, data entry, and other administrative tasks.  

Group Volunteers

The mainstage Festival in Shakespeare Glen is a major undertaking.  Group volunteers are needed to work alongside volunteers, assisting Festival staff with audience services and helping create a cheerful, safe, and friendly ambience.  Volunteering with your Group in Shakespeare Glen is fun, social, rewarding, and a great way to support one of the area’s leading arts institutions!
