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, and our annual Gala to name a few. As the 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 significant undertaking. Group volunteers are needed to work alongside core volunteers, assisting Festival staff with audience services and helping create a cheerful, safe, and friendly ambiance. Whether your group is 5 or 25 – we can use your help. Reserved seating can be arranged once the show starts.
