SBTS volunteersShakespeare 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:

Club100 – distribute 100 flyers in your community.

Help us spread the word about SBTS performances this summer. Pass out 100 flyers (or more) in your community. Wherever you go, leave a trail of SBTS flyers behind — libraries, coffee shops, salons, break rooms, recreation facilities, club meetings, church, etc. In exchange, we'll be happy to provide you with reserved seating for 2 at any performance. Simply contact Club100 with your mailing address and tell her how many you'd like to distribute. We'll mail them to you right away.

SBTS Location flyer will be posted when tour is fully booked.

Tour City Committee – help find support in your community

We don't know your community as well as you do, so we need folks in our tour cities who are willing to help represent SBTS by connecting us to organizations in those cities who may be able to support our performances financially, i.e. Rotary Clubs, Women's Clubs, Friends of the Parks, Kiwanis, etc. Email Lisa Coffi to get involved.
