Volunteer for Bread & Puppet’s December 2017 NYC Run
It is once again time for the annual Bread & Puppet run in the Johnson Theater at Theater for the New City (155 1st Avenue, New York, NY 10003). This year we’ll be in town from December 5th-17th 2017 with Our Domestic Insurrection Circus and The Honey Let’s Go Home Opera. Come volunteer for one or both shows! We are especially looking for experienced singers for the Opera.
This opportunity is open to everyone.
There is some flexibility in circus rehearsal and performance attendance. For example, if you can only make the second circus rehearsal but not the first, we can still probably throw you into the show in a more minor way. The opera is a more complex piece and will require stricter attendance.
Please rsvp with the volunteer coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org with your schedule if you’d like to volunteer!
A detailed rehearsal schedule is at the bottom of this page.
FOR KIDS: There are always roles available in the circus for children. For scheduling and/or to RSVP about kid circus performers, please write to our kid coordinator joe at email@example.com .
FOR BRASS PLAYERS: We are always looking for brass players to play in our circus band. Please rsvp with what instrument you play and when you can make it.
FOOD: There will be meals before every show and rehearsal (Dinner at 5pm for night shows, Lunch at noon for matinees) unless otherwise noted. These are optional and open to all volunteers.
HOUSING: For those of you traveling from out of town to perform with us, Bread & Puppet unfortunately cannot help you arrange housing. Good luck!
COSTUMING: We wear white for the circus (we will have extras if you need them) and “monochrome” for the opera.
For any other questions please contact the volunteer coordinator.
The Domestic Insurrection Circus will run Thursday December 7th through Sunday December 10th. The running time of the show is one hour.
