A Company of Fools is Ottawa's only independent professional Shakespeare company. We are a not-for-profit corporation and a registered charity. We provide programming all year round. The mandate for the Torchlight Shakespeare series, our outdoor summer event, is to bring full length productions of the works of William Shakespeare to Ottawa City Parks.


Volunteer Opportunities

Organization: A Company of Fools
Love theatre and the great outdoors? www.fools.ca
Volunteers are valued members of the Fools team and we are always happy to include anyone who wishes to contribute to making theatre in the region fun and accessible! Whether you want to become more involved in your community, get to know the arts scene in general, collect co-op hours for your school course, or just enjoy a night out in the park with fellow theatre lovers, we would love to engage with you. We promise a fun environment, a Fools t-shirt, an enjoyable show, and a volunteer experience like no other.

Our 16th Annual Torchlight Shakespeare presentation is Twelfth Night. Running July 2nd-August 18th, the show is just around the corner and we would love you to join our band of merry, Foolish volunteers!

Volunteer positions include:

Muscle & Energy – Want a fun, healthy, free work out? Skip the gym and join our Tetris-loving dynamos! No matter the size, this is a group of people who can roll up their sleeves to help with load in and load out of our set before and after performances.

People Enthusiasts – Love talking to people and making them feel great? Our Front of House volunteers are just the team for you. From chatting about a mutual love theatre, to helping people find that little patch of grass the perfect size for their chair, blanket or dog, this team dedicated to making the audience experience extra Foolishly special before, during and after the performance.

Community Ambassadors – Want to volunteer during the daytime? We’re looking for an energetic poster posse to take neighbourhoods by storm days in advance of our community visits. As the face of the Fools, you will help spread the message through print and word of mouth that a Company of Fools’ production of Twelfth Night is coming to their park and soon.

Have other skills not listed here? We’d love to hear how else you might like to help ensure that our Torchlight Shakespeare season is smooth and Foolish!

For these and other volunteer opportunities please email info@fools.ca and indicate in the body of your email which position(s) you are interested in.

a Company of Fools encourages volunteers from diverse artists of all backgrounds regardless of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

While we appreciate solicitations from those who may wish to join our acting ensemble, regretfully we are not in the position to offer volunteer positions in the area of stage performance. Our casting of professional actors is complete for the season but we encourage performers to keep an eye out on our website for our audition notice in November.
