I am deeply moved and humbled by the level of commitment the Friends of Will have for the Festival. The intertwining of volunteers within GRSF amazes me. We truly would not be able to exist without your efforts and that is what makes GRSF unique. Our FOW members are invaluable.
Lee Gundersheimer, Managing Director

The Friends of Will provide Company and Festival support, Front of House support, and Community outreach.
