Volunteering at the Blyth Festival

Volunteers are an integral part of this professional theatre family. The Blyth Festival has a large corps of tremendously loyal volunteers who put in many happy hours of service. Whatever your age, whatever your interests, we have an opportunity for you.

By volunteering you become part of a great Canadian theatre. Learn new skills, meet interesting people, make new friends, and see first-class theatre in the making.

Volunteer requirements

We are always looking for friendly and enthusiastic people to join our experienced volunteers. A knowledge of the local area in and around Blyth would be a great advantage.

All staff and volunteers must be fully vaccinated in accordance with the Blyth Centre for the Arts Vaccination Policy. You will be required to provide proof of full vaccination at your orientation night.

Please note that all volunteer posts are just that – voluntary. No payment or recompense for expenses will be offered.

All volunteers will need to attend an orientation session prior to the season. Volunteer orientation will take place in early June 2023, and we will have multiple nights for you to choose from, with orientations for both the Harvest Stage and Memorial Hall.

“Volunteering for the Blyth Theatre is one of the easiest things I have done. It is a great way to meet people from all over and you begin new and lasting friendships. One big plus is you are able to view some great plays from excellent writers.”

Denise Morris

“We both feel that Blyth Festival is Canadas story-teller, creating and sharing stories that speak to our experiences, here in Huron County as well as across Canada. It is a satisfying experience to support the work of the Festival – from play development to performances. The funds raised by volunteer efforts have an important role to play in keeping the theatre arts thriving in Huron County at the Blyth Festival.”
