About Guild Festival Theatre
The Guild Festival Theatre is the only professional theatre company based in Scarborough, Ontario. Since our first production of The Cherry Orchard in 2011, the GFT has been serving the eastern GTA by animating the Greek Stage in the Guild Park & Gardens.
Taking our inspiration from the classical columns of our venue, the Guild Festival Theatre has presented classic playwrights such as Shakespeare, Moliere and Chekov, whose universality and timelessness continue to speak to modern audiences. The GFT is also committed to expanding the definition of classics to include Canadian classics and Canadian takes on world classics.
What We Are Looking For
The Guild Festival Theatre is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to serve on our Board of Directors. We need people who are passionate about live theatre and want to make a difference in their community. Board members ensure the success of the GFT by providing guidance and governance to the company while spreading the word about the theatre’s productions as well as taking an active role in raising funds to support the company’s activities.
Members of the Board meet approximately once a month with an additional 5-10 hours of duties in between regular meetings, mostly concentrated around our summer season.

- Fundraising, Development & Sponsorship
