What’s the job?. Dusk Dances is looking for 8 volunteers for each performance nights, and 4 for the dress rehearsals. Plus on-call volunteers for rain dates!
What will I do?. Positions include info table, dressing room security, site security, and ushers. Volunteer duties also include program stuffing, helping to move the audience from site to site, and nightly set-up/tear down of info table, banners and signs.
