If you love theatre, want to meet new people, need volunteer hours or wish to graciously give back to your community, we invite you to join us!


When you volunteer at the Freewill Shakespeare Festival, you become part of our family: an incredible group of dedicated individuals who bring our annual festival to life! Our volunteers are the heart and soul of our festival, and we are so happy to want to join us this year!


Freewill is dedicated to making Shakespeare and our festival accessible to everyone. We welcome everyone to join us in the community leagues, and we encourage humans of all backgrounds, abilities, and strengths to apply to be a volunteer. Each volunteer team has its own set of qualifications, but we have some basic requirements that apply to all Freewill volunteers.


  • Be 14 years of age or older at the start of the festival

  • Serve a minimum of 4 shifts (10+ hours) during the festival and

  • Attend an orientation session in early June.


When you volunteer with Freewill, you will join a team of passionate theatre enthusiasts and arts supporters. In addition to meeting new people and connecting with the arts community, here are a few of the perks we offer to festival volunteers:

  • Water and snacks on the days of your shifts

  • Discounts on festival tickets, concessions and merch

  • A free volunteer t-shirt

  • Invitations to exclusive volunteer events and parties
