Dickens Festival Street Theatre

The Dickens Festival is getting ramped up for a great festival this year, and we are booking volunteer Acts and Street Characters this year. The Dickens Festival runs:

December 7-9th

10 AM – 9 PM

SouthTown Expo Center

9575 S State St, Sandy, UT 84070

I am looking for a couple acts:

  1. Actors to be STATIONARY characters from any of Charles Dicken’s books to interact with guests reinforcing the overall atmosphere. Characters would give directions, chat (but not interfere with guests shopping or watching shows). You can find a great list here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Dickensian_characters
  2. Small acts (a Capella singing (quartets, soloists, etc.), instruments, short scenes, story tellers, puppet shows, balloon artists, face painting, juggling) and skills of any kind to showcase on a small stage. We will not have the small stage out front, so all performers interested must be in costume and be a Capella.

TICKETS: For every 3 hours you volunteer; you will receive one ticket to give to friends/family to attend the Festival or so you can come back another day to attend the Festival yourself.

CHARACTER/ACTS: The time period to keep in mind for your acts and characters is 19th Century London. It is also around the December holidays, so as many music/scenes that can be pulled from that time period/holiday are highly encouraged.

COSTUMES: We have a costumer that can assist with costumes as needed, but whatever you can pull yourselves the more comfortable you may be. Because we use the costumes in St. George the weekend before, costumes will not be available till the week of and I will keep you apprised of the times those are ready. You can rent pieces for $5 apiece and it will be fully refunded upon return of the costume. If you are able to get shoes and a white button shirt we can provide the rest!

Please let me know if you have any questions and I hope to get you in our schedule for this great event!

    Do you have to be a certain age to volunteer?
