Volunteer at Bard on the Beach

Volunteers are an integral part of our organization and play an important role in the success of our season. From June through September, our team of 200+ dedicated volunteers serve as ambassadors for the festival by providing a high level of hospitality and a friendly, welcoming face to our patrons. Volunteers work in the Front of House area as Greeters, Ticket Takers or Ushers; in retail as Boutique or Concession assistants and as Event assistants. We also offer opportunities to volunteer year round in the office and at community events. 

The Bard on the Beach Volunteer program is generously sponsored by Peoples Trust. 

Please note: there are currently no opportunities to volunteer in the costume or production department.
