Volunteering for the Fringe is a great way to meet new people, get work experience, practice your English language skills, and see a hell of a lot of free theatre—and get that warm feeling you get from being needed. The Fringe Festival is on Granville Island, and happens between Sept. 10-20, 2015.
The volunteer positions we have range from selling tickets and pouring drinks to counting money and being part of our production crew. If feeling warm isn’t enough, volunteers also get a free t-shirt, snacks in the Volunteer Centre, an invitation to the Volunteer Appreciation Party (where there are performances from Fringe artists), and a Volunteer Rush Pass, which lets you into any show that’s not already sold out!
This year the Fringe is working with local interpreters as well as Douglas College’s Interpreting program to set up free interpreting services for Deaf/Hard of Hearing volunteers during the Festival. We will also have some ASL-interpreted shows this year, as well as a number of non-English, visual shows that are accessible to Deaf/Hard of Hearing audiences. Volunteers will get a festival pass that lets them see shows for free as a thank you from the Fringe Festival team.
