Volunteering for Robin Hood: The Great Escape

Want to get involved with theatre this summer? We’ve got you covered! With more than half a dozen different roles, you can experience what behind the scenes of theatre creation involves. If you would like to participate, sign up with our online form at https://forms.gle/3ko45J4N6fEj166T9.

On April 15 we held an online information session for all interested volunteers. If you were unable to attend this information session, a copy of our slides from the evening can be found here: CLICK HERE FOR SLIDESIf you are unable to access these slides or would prefer a recording of the entire session, please contact festival@stfx.ca.

NOTE FOR ALL VOLUNTEERS: This summer we will be creating a documentary about preparing for a show in the outdoors. This documentary will be viewed on our website, social media channels, and potentially shared at local film festivals upon completion. Therefore we will be sporadically filming various volunteer activities as part of our production in the creation of the documentary. If you would prefer not to be filmed, please send an email to festival@stfx.ca and include what volunteer groups you are involved with and we will ensure we respect your preference.
