How to Volunteer with Cincinnati Shakespeare Company

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company could not exist without the generosity of our community. Countless people have given of their time, treasure, and talent and we couldn’t be more grateful. As we move into the brand new Otto M. Budig Theater, there are more opportunities than ever to volunteer with Cincy Shakes!

Many opportunities are available with varying degrees of commitment so you can choose what works best for your schedule and interests. If interested please contact [email protected]

Ushers/House Managers

Over 25,000 patrons come to see a mainstage production at Cincinnati Shakespeare Company every year! We are committed to make every visit a fun and memorable experience. Our dedicated volunteers contribute their time and talents to help us achieve an elegant and friendly atmosphere that keeps our guests coming back to each and every show.

Ushers arrive an hour before show time and assist with scanning guest tickets and theater seating. In return, you get to see the show for free! Dates are flexible so your schedule is in your own hands, and you can usher as many or as few shows as you wish.

Interested? Please email: [email protected] for instructions on how to sign up.
