Shakespeare Festival Seeks Board Members

VALLEY SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL, the Naugatuck Valley’s only nonprofit outdoor theater company, is seeking ambitious, energetic, leaders who believe in the absolute necessity of the arts in a well-lived life to join our team.

We are a federally- and state-recognized 501 ©(3) tax exempt nonprofit theater company dedicated to bringing free and low cost theater to the communities in and surrounding the lower Naugatuck Valley. We are beginning our sixth year of operation in 2018.

In the last five years we have produced 5 full free outdoor summer productions of Shakespeare’s works in Shelton’s Veterans-Riverwalk Park.

We have presented 5 free productions of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol in Shelton’s Plumb Memorial Library, and the Historical Societies in Shelton and Seymour.

We have performed 8 script-in-hand fundraiser productions in local pubs and eating establishments, and even a furniture store (!) throughout the Valley and in the city of Fairfield.

We have developed a dual-component Touring program (our Education Initiative for schools and a more basic version for other venues), which has played in public schools, libraries, homeless shelters, and senior centers in the Valley for the last 4 years, and we have participated in countless fundraisers and community events throughout the Valley.

Our organization has grown by leaps and bounds in the last 5 years and we now find ourselves in need of some dynamic, enthusiastic board members who believe, as we do, that literacy is of paramount importance in our society. We believe that we are fostering an interest in, and respect for, literacy and communication through our live productions of classic works of literature.

If you share our goals and would like to be a part of something truly inspirational, please email a resume and letter of intent to: or for more information, please call 203-513-9446.

We look forward to hearing from YOU!
