Sign up as a volunteer and receive some very special benefits! Last year, over 60 volunteers made our festival possible. This year, we need your help even more. With 18 events, we have lots of interesting, fun activities for volunteers – be at our table at the Farmers' Markets, drive visiting artists, help backstage, register workshop attendees, distribute posters, sell tickets, make video, greet visitors, take photos and much more. Whether you're young, old, love theatre, or know nothing about it, your enthusiasm and talents are welcomed!

Have a spare room? We're also looking for 2 or 3 nights' accommodation for our out-of-town performing artists. If you can help, please call us.
