Over the past 25 years, The Freewill Shakespeare Festival has had the opportunity to work with some pretty incredible people: our volunteers. We truly appreciate their dedication, support, love and energy. We wouldn’t have come this far without them!

Become a Festival Volunteer

In 2014, the Freewill Shakespeare Festival runs from July 9 to 27th at the MYER HOROWITZ THEATRE (U of A), with shows at 8pm Tuesday thru Saturday, and matinees at 2 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Shifts are 6-10pm for evening shows and 12-5pm for matinee shows and  we ask for volunteers to take at least 3 shifts . Roles include ushers, concession sales, merch sales, line up patrol and ticket takers.

The perks of volunteering include being able to attend one performance for free for you and a guest, a volunteer appreciation party, ticket to Rapid Fire Theatre’s 2014 season, volunteer tshirt and other awesome things like the undying devotion of the Freewill Shakespeare Festival!

We are now accepting volunteer applications for our 2014 season. Please note that our Assistant Managing Director does not start until mid May and you will hear back from her after that point. Applications will only be accepted until June 13th so get yours in today! Application form can be found HERE.
