Volunteer/Usher

Due to the location of our first two productions, we will not be able to book ushers for Exit the King or Julius Caesar. Please check back in December to sign up to usher for Richard III and Much Ado About Nothing. 

 

Volunteers are a crucial part of our organization. We need volunteers to help with everything from fundraising to postering to office support, and many additional, meaningful projects.

 

To volunteer:

  • Email us at info (at) actorsshakespeareproject.org
  • Or call us at 617.776.2200
