In its theatrical portfolio, CSC executes up to ten mainstage productions and six touring productions annually. Beyond its theatrical portfolio, CSC collaborates with many local community and arts organizations.

Auditions have concluded at this time.

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.


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 are required to arrive an hour before the show starts, typically at 6:30 pm for evening performances or 1 pm for matinees. Upon arrival, you'll participate in a brief meeting led by the Front of House Manager to review your assignments and the specifics for that day's production. Your responsibilities include scanning guest tickets and assisting with theater seating arrangements.

During the performance, you'll have access to a padded seat at the back of the theater, from where you can both enjoy the show and keep an eye on the audience. After the performance concludes, we ask that you help with cleaning the theater by picking up any litter. This volunteer position offers the perk of watching our shows free of charge! Moreover, we offer flexible scheduling to accommodate your availability, allowing you to volunteer for as many or as few shows as you prefer.
