Industry Listing, Volunteer.

Tuesday through Sunday, from July 4 to September 1

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 37th edition of Shakespeare in High Park as we present William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing and Measure for Measure July 4 to September 1, 2019. Two dynamic directors, a vibrant cast, and a mythic setting are a perfect reason to volunteer this summer! The plays will be performed throughout the summer on alternate nights.

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 July 4 to September 1. Volunteers are required to complete a minimum of six (6) three-hour shifts over the summer. Full training is provided.

Volunteers see Much Ado About Nothing and Measure for Measure 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 have access to our company’s membership benefits with Ontario Attractions Reciprocal Program where you receive unique offers to many of Ontario’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 (3) 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! Sign up here or contact Amanda at and indicate which volunteer recruitment session you plan to attend.
