About the Event
Enthusiastic volunteers needed to help us provide FREE theater at the Griffith Park Shakespeare Festival. You'll have the opportunity to gain experience in a unique environment that is part theater performance and part outdoor festival event. Our volunteers help with everything from set-up & tear down procedures, selling merchandise, helping run our concessions area, greeting guests & passing out programs, and sometimes helping out backstage during the run of the show.

What we're looking for are people who can commit to being regular volunteers, in whatever capacity is possible for you and your schedule. In the past, we've had volunteers that came once a week throughout the summer, volunteers who came between 3-4 days per week, and volunteers who were only able to come several times throughout the summer. We are, of course, very understanding about various work schedules and such so we also have volunteers who come for the first half of a volunteer shift or the second half. We just ask that you let us know if that's the case!

What we're mostly looking for are people who are enthusiastic about theater and helping their community! It's so helpful for us when we have an engaged and committed group of core volunteers (ones that are able to regularly volunteer throughout the summer) as we are able to get to know you and grow together as a team. The volunteers and staff often refer to the festival as summer camp!

Volunteer Orientation happening on 6/25. Click here for details: https://timecounts.org/indy-shakes/events/15444
