Volunteer_Ad_2018_6

Clay and Paper Theatre is casting for volunteer performers for Night of Dread 2018. There’s lots of gleefully dreadful characters and haunting giant puppets that need your theatrical spirit and animation during our fearful community parade and pageant.

We’re also interested in volunteers who may be able to support this event in a production assistant role. There are tasks and setup to complete before the event and the day and evening of the event.
