Industry Listing, Volunteer.

Play a starring role this summer in Toronto’s longest-running and most popular outdoor theatre event! Canadian Stage invites individuals to spend evenings under the stars volunteering for the 36th edition of Shakespeare in High Park as we present William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, June 28 to September 2, 2018.

Canadian Stage is seeking reliable individuals, 15 years of age or older (12 or older if volunteering as a family), who are friendly, enjoy theatre and have excellent customer service skills to join our diverse team of volunteer ushers at Shakespeare in High Park. Responsibilities include greeting patrons, accepting donations, answering questions and assisting our patrons in finding seats. Shifts are available onsite in High Park from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm, Tuesday through Sunday, from June 28 to September 2. Volunteers are required to complete a minimum of six three-hour shifts over the summer. Full training is provided.

Volunteers see Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream for free and are also rewarded with tickets to Canadian Stage’s upcoming season, a Shakespeare in High Park volunteer t-shirt to work in, backstage tours, and an invitation to our annual appreciation barbeque. Volunteers will also develop leadership and customer service skills. All of our volunteers become a member of the Toronto Attractions Council Reciprocal Program where you receive unique offers to many of Toronto’s fun summer attractions! In addition, students can earn hours towards their community service requirements.

If you would like to be involved, attend one of three Volunteer Recruitment Sessions hosted by Canadian Stage at Berkeley Street Theatre. It is mandatory that you attend one of these three sessions in order to enroll as a volunteer. Space is limited and RSVP’s are encouraged! Contact Amanda at and indicate which volunteer recruitment session you plan to attend.

Volunteer Recruitment Sessions will be held at 26 Berkeley Street on the following dates:
• Tuesday June 5, 6 pm – 8 pm
• Thursday June 12, 6 pm – 8 pm
• Tuesday June 19, 6 pm – 8 pm
