“What, are you busy, ho? Need you my help?”

Lady Capulet, Act 4 Scene 3

We couldn’t exist without our dedicated volunteers and ever-present supporters. There are many ways to help (for one hour or for the rest of your living days), meet like-minded people, have fun, and earn our undying gratitude.

Interested in volunteering? We’re just an email away – info@fools.ca.


Torchlight Shakespeare is our annual summer Shakespeare in the Park tour, where we bring theatre to parks throughout the National Capital Region. We’ve got our cast, we’ve got our crew, but we’re still missing one key ingredient in our theatre pie: YOU! We are looking for passionate, motivated, and fun-loving Fools to join our volunteer team this summer. 

There are tons of ways you can help the Fools bring some Shakespearian magic to the parks this summer: weather it be flexing your muscles to set up and tear down our fantastical sets each night, showing off your gift of gab with our patrons as you doll out programs and help folks find their seats, or being the harbinger of delicious snacks at our concession stand, there is a position for every skillset. Most volunteer shifts take place between 3PM – 9PM.

So if you’ve always wanted to be a Fool, you’re just one email away! Drop us a line, and we’ll see you in the parks.

IMPORTANT: Please note that volunteers under the age of 16 must have the consent of their parent/legal guardian to work with a Company of Fools. Please download, print, have signed, and bring this waiver to your first volunteer shift.

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