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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office at (920) 854-7111 if you would like to volunteer and become a Bard Buddy!
