Shakespeare & Company: Gardeners

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Shakespeare & Volunteer Company

  • 1 person is interested

Shakespeare & Company, a highly-respected theater company in Lenox, MA in the heart of the Berkshires, seeks volunteer gardeners to maintain plantings located in high-visibility areas on the Company's campus.

The job involves digging, pulling weeds, and replacing plantings, so volunteers should dress appropriately for this kind of physical work. Our gardeners are a great group of people and generally meet each Monday morning at 9am. If there is inclement weather, gardeners can come as a group or on their own another day of the week of their choosing.

Volunteers earn a voucher toward a free ticket to Shakespeare & Company performances for every two hours of gardening work.

Mission Statement

The mission of Shakespeare & Company is to deliver a sustainable, integrated, and vital program of Performance, Training, and Education for the audience, the artist, the Company, and the community. We embrace the classical ideals and visceral experience of Shakespeare’s work: collaboration, commitment to language, physical prowess and the embodied voice.


Shakespeare & Company, a highly-respected theater company in Lenox, MA in the heart of the Berkshires, seeks volunteers during its May-October season. Opportunities include ushering, gift shop sales, company events, gardening, baking, marketing support, and our Oral History/Archiving project. Volunteers earn vouchers for free tickets to company performances and work alongside a terrific group of people. Shakespeare & Company presents a combination of classical and contemporary plays on four stages, with performances running Tuesday - Sunday, both matinees and evenings. Our corps of volunteers make up a self-managed group called Shakespeare & Volunteer Company, with a leadership team made up of volunteers working closely and in concert with theater company staff. Each volunteer job has its own Volunteer Leader who oversees his/her group. This is an ideal opportunity for people who live in the Berkshires full-time, on a seasonal basis, or for just an extended period. Come join us!
