Volunteering for the Nashville Shakespeare Festival's productions is a unique experience that not only serves the arts community of Nashville but also exposes the volunteers to various aspects of the theatrical world. All talents are welcome throughout the year, whether they be as complex as carpentry or as basic as phone skills. Untrained, willing volunters are also more than welcome to assist the Festival and learn about the things that make it the successful organization that it is today.
The Nashville Shakespeare Festival most often uses volunteers during its runs of Shakespeare in the Park. These end-of-summer shows, which are free to the public with a suggested give-what-you-can donation, depend heavily upon their volunteers. These volunteers help with nightly setup, passing out programs, staffing the concessions area, collecting donations, and generally making sure that the things outside of the show itself run smoothly.
The Festival also needs volunteers for its annual Winter Production at Troutt Theater. Volunteers will usher and assist with concessions and box office duties. Ushers are needed both for evening performances and weekday morning matineesfor school groups.
The Nashville Shakespeare Festival would love to have you join us!
