Shakespeare by the Sea couldn’t run without the folks who come out to lend a helping hand by volunteering. We invite you to invest a little of your time and energy to help us get our festival up and running and keep it operating smoothly throughout the season. You’ll meet some great people and become part of something truly special.
Become a member of one of our Volunteer Committees:
SBTS Location flyer – download and distribute at will
- Host a Facebook, Meet-Up, or other social media event at one of our shows. We can even teach you how!
- Let us know when your group is coming. We’ll shout out to you from Facebook, and make sure you get a visit from one of our directors or producers before the show.
- We would particularly love to hear from people who will help us reach South Pasadena, Encino, Whittier, Oak Park, Santa Ana and Beverly Hills. These communities are teeming with lovers of Shakespeare who don’t know about us yet.
- We reward generously with up-front, reserved seating and VIP treatment.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are willing and able to pitch in!
