2019 Fall Festival of Shakespeare


The annual Fall Festival of Shakespeare is a residency program at 10 high schools in Massachusetts and neighboring New York. Shakespeare & Company directing teams lead students at each school through a language-based exploration of different Shakespeare plays, culminating in full-scale productions at their own schools and then on the main stage at the Tina Packer Playhouse.


2019 marks the 31st year of Shakespeare & Company’s Fall Festival of Shakespeare.  Providing videos of The Fall Festival has become a tradition, and has always been one of CTSB’s primary fundraising activities.  The energy and enthusiasm of the participating students make it one of the high points of our year.  It also provides a significant source of programming for our education channel. Your volunteer participation is needed and most welcome.


We need your help!


CTSB needs volunteers to crew five (5) positions for each of ten (10) performances:  camera (x3), audio (x1), and script reader (x1).  We are especially looking for experienced camera operators.  Feel free to sign up for more than one performance.


When planning your volunteer day, please note that “crew call” (the time at which we need you to show up before the performance), is one hour before the performance time listed on the schedule, below.  For all performances, please report one hour before the performance to the CTSB table in the lobby of the Tina Packer Playhouse


CTSB will not be open regular business hours the week of November 18th because staff will be at the playhouse much of the time. Please call ahead if you have business at the station.


We also have a need for non-technical volunteers at our sales table in the theater lobby. This gets very busy between performances! Please sign up early as we may not be able to fulfill all requests, especially closer to the festival dates.


We will provide food and refreshments between shows.  When you sign up, please alert us to any food allergies you may have.
