Call For Volunteers!

With the 2022 Bard’s Bus Tour less than a month away, Driftwood is looking for volunteers to help us out with greeting and ushering our audiences this summer!

Volunteers get to see our production of King Henry Five for free, and are an integral part of making the Bard’s Bus Tour happen. And because Driftwood is a registered charity, high school students can put volunteer work with us toward their community service hours.

If you’d like to volunteer for us this summer, please fill out this google form.

You’ll notice that we’re asking volunteers to sign up for an online orientation session in July to make sure everyone is filled in on how things will be working this year. The two date options are Wednesday, July 6th at 7pm, and Saturday, July 9th at 2pm. The sessions most likely won’t be more than 30 minutes long. If you would like to volunteer but cannot make it to one of these sessions, please indicate this on the sign-up form.

If you have any questions, please send an email to producer Ella Kohlmann at
