The Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival engages the widest possible audience in a fresh conversation about what is essential in Shakespeare’s plays. Our theater lives in the here and now, at the intersection between the virtuosity of the actor, the imagination of the audience, and the inspiration of the text. It’s also a phenomenal place to work, to learn, and to create.

Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants shall be afforded equal employment opportunities without discrimination because of race, creed, color, national origin, sex, age, disability or marital status.


FRONT-OF-HOUSE Summer 2020

Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival is a great place to gain hands-on experience in customer service and the inner workings of a non-profit theater company. The Festival’s artistic home, an open-air theater tent on the grounds of Boscobel House and Gardens (Garrison, NY), is a place where all are welcome to experience effervescent theater in a warm, approachable environment. Front-of-House staff members working in Box Office, Concessions, and House (the Theater) are often the first point of contact for new and returning audience members and must be comfortable assisting individuals from all backgrounds.
