Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Santa Cruz Shakespeare! We are so honored that you want to share your time and energy with us! Please see available volunteer opportunities below. Performances run through September 2. As The Grove is quite accessible and user-friendly, we need at least 8 ushers per performance to make the shows run smoothly, and 2 parking assistants to help direct patrons to our assigned parking lots. All signups must go through the online signup system. We cannot take personal requests over the phone or email.
PARKING: ALL PARKING, FOR VOLUNTEERS, PATRONS, and HANDICAP PLACARDS, IS $5. Cars of 4 or more people receive free parking. There is no direct bus route to the theater. You will need to arrange transportation or carpool with others if you do not drive.
Volunteers are required to arrive promptly two hours before the show. Please plan accordingly so that you leave time for traffic and parking. Latecomers may be asked to either buy tickets to see the performance or book ushering for another date. When everyone shows up on time, the training - no matter how often you have ushered in the past, can go quickly. Please meet for your orientation by the main entrance to the Grove.
If there are any problems with your schedule, or if you have an emergency and are not able to meet your commitment, please change your time slot through this website. If it is the day of the scheduled performance, please email email@example.com OR call the box office at 831-460-6399.
