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.

Questions about volunteering? Email

There is always a lot to do – and a lot of performances to cover throughout the summer with volunteer manpower. If you would like to volunteer for next summer, email us at

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 Stephanie Coltrin or Suzanne Dean to get involved.
