For each show, we will need a Greeter, two Parkers, and an Usher. Say hello to and guide eager patrons as they navigate the serpentine road at Bjorklunden, help them safely park, or direct them to their seats to enjoy the performance under our distinguished maple tree.
Once the show begins, sit down and enjoy! Each volunteer will receive a free ticket to the evening’s performance, as well as a Door Shakespeare bumper sticker and a Shakespeare shilling which may be saved and redeemed for merchandise and prizes.
Contact Michaela Kraft at email@example.com or call the office at (920) 854-7111 if you would like to volunteer and become a Bard Buddy!

Door-Tran is a creative community network dedicated to connecting people to transportation services that are affordable, available, and accessible. Our volunteer drivers are reimbursed $.50 per mile. Trips lasting 4 hours or more include up to $10 meal reimbursement. Drivers chose how often and where they want to transport to. A quote from someone who recently used our volunteer transportation program: "I cant really express how much your service has relieved me of a lot of worries." When volunteering with Door-Tran you will be making a difference in your community.
