Become a Volunteer

We salute the support, enthusiasm, and hard work of our volunteers! 

Volunteers make up the heart of The Ship assisting with special events and ushering you to your seats. You see them working in the lobby every time you attend a performance. There are other opportunities to help out as well.

It’s easy to become a Ship’s volunteer.

If you can contribute some time to the theatre, please call our office at 1-902-254-2003 or email us at so we can add your name to our roster!

Host an Actor, Designer or Playwright

Can you support the theatre by hosting an artist?

Call us if you can help in this way or wish more information on what is required.

No need to worry about meals or transportation. The artists can take care of this on their own. If you have offered in the past but we haven’t called on you yet, we still have your name on our list!

Hosts make an essential contribution towards the Ship’s Company Theatre attracting Canadian theatre makers to Parrsboro to create and perform for you.

If you can contribute housing to the theatre, please call our office at 1-902-254-2003 or email us at so we can add your name to our roster!

We are located in Awokun, Mi’kma’ki, also known as Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, which is on land that is in the unceded and unsurrendered territory of the Mi’kmaq people. The Mi’kmaq people have been here on this land for over 11,000 years. In 1752 a treaty was signed between the British and the Mi’kmaq that detailed the sharing of the land and its resources. We know that the rights within this treaty have not been upheld. As descendants of settlers who colonized this land, it is important that we think about our relationship to the land, to Mi’kmaq culture and its people, and how we can make a future where we actually share the land and the resources it gives us. We need to think about how we can move forward to enact a future of respect and generosity. And we need to act immediately, with kindness and compassion. A major step in this process is educating ourselves. Ship’s Company Theatre is on a continuing journey of awareness and education. We encourage you to join us.

Ship's Company Theatre would like to thank eOpen Solutions for their support.
