CSC Shakespeare on the Common Volunteers

We are Commonwealth Shakespeare Company, an organization dedicated to providing free full scale productions of Shakespeare’s classics on the Boston Commons. Our organization is reaching out to you in search of volunteers for this summer’s play, Cymbeline. We have worked with volunteers from your university in the previous years, and would love to continue this relationship.

Below is a short synopsis of this years production, Cymbeline:

Free Shakespeare on the Common takes up residence once again with Shakespeare’s lovely mystical dramedy Cymbeline. The play chronicles the fates of King Cymbeline and his family through a journey of deception, intrigue and separation. Join his daughter Imogen, one of Shakespeare’s most beloved heroines, as she is swept into a nearly mythic realm of mistaken identities, twists and turns, and the all-consuming quest for true love.

The show is running Tuesday-Sunday, July 17th-August 4th 6PM to 11:30PM (Sunday performances run an hour earlier). Duties include distributing playbills, assisting with merchandise and concessions sales, and helping with breakdown, among other tasks.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Any person interested in volunteering should send an email of interest to in order to receive a link to the volunteer sign up sheet.
