Theatre by the Bay is committed to hiring, showcasing, and developing artists within Simcoe County. Hiring preference will be given to those who live in, were raised in, or have family within Barrie and/or Simcoe County.

Theatre by the Bay promotes an environment of equity, inclusion, and diversity. Artists from under-represented communities, especially those who live within Simcoe County, are highly encouraged to apply for employment.

Unfortunately, no opportunities are available at the moment.


Our shows would not be possible without our volunteers! We are always looking for people who are eager and ready to jump in and have fun. It takes 50 - 60 volunteers to make our season a success.

Our volunteers come from all walks of life, all age groups, and all levels of experience. We have teenagers, retirees and everyone in between. Best of all, no experience is required to volunteer - just plenty of enthusiasm!

To make your life easier, Theatre by the Bay manages all of its volunteer shifts through Tandempark. This amazing free (and secure) software allows you to see what shifts are coming up, receive notifications before your shift, and much more! All volunteers will be required to create an account before their first shift.
