Volunteer


The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey , one of the nation's leading classic theatre companies, offers a variety of volunteer opportunites, both behind-the-scenes and in the front-of-house. Work in a fun, fast-paced environment while serving as a liaison between the theatre and our patrons. Assist with ushering, concessions, taking tickets, and running our gift shop! In return for each volunteer session, you will receive a ticket voucher allowing you to see a performance free of charge. 

A great opportunity to build your résumé, fulfill a community service requirement, or to just be a part of the theatre scene! 

Scheduling is flexible. 

No minimum commitment.

Opportunities are available May through December!
