Please Give Us Some Information About Yourself
Are you volunteering as an individual or as a group?
If you're volunteering as a group, the person listed above will help us by forwarding all the necessary information to everyone in his or her group. I am Volunteering as...
How many people are in your group?
What are their names?
Of those people, are any of them children? If so, what are their ages?
Have you or your group ever volunteered in the Parade before?
If yes, in what year(s)? Check all that apply.
2007 or before
There are THREE ways to Volunteer...
Some of our jobs are easier than others, but they are all fun. Puppeteering in the Parade requires a fast one and a half mile walk, often carrying something unwieldy at the end of a long pole. Veterans of previous Parades will tell you, this takes a fair amount of physical endurance. Some roles require you to attend a rehearsal. Volunteer Marshals do NOT carry puppets. Instead, they have the important position of helping to ORGANIZE the Parade from initial line-up to completion. Marshals work alongside other Volunteers and Parade Staff to keep things running smoothly. Visual Arts Volunteers help to create puppets in our workshops and may or may not also perform in the Parade.
Would you like to carry a puppet, be a Marshal, or make puppets?
(descriptions of each role are provided just above this question)
Puppeteer (performing) - on Halloween Night
Marshal (behind the scenes) - on Halloween Night
Visual Arts (making puppets) - weekends in October
If you chose to carry a puppet... AND you have done that before: Which puppet did you carry, or which puppet group were you with (Puppeteers Cooperative, or Superior Concept Monsters)? And would you like to do the same thing again or would you like to try something new?
If you chose to carry a puppet and if all the positions are filled...
would you be happy to be a Marshal instead?
Yes, either role is fine with me
No, I'm only interested in carrying a puppet. Maybe I will volunteer again next year a bit earlier...
If you chose to puppeteer...
Would you prefer a puppet job that is small, medium, large or mammoth?
Puppetry Technical Skills - knowing what you are good at helps us assign you to an appropriate role!
Do you have any relevant special technical skills or interest? If so, briefly tell us here about performance-type experience.
MARSHALLING - Organizational & Event Skills
Those who choose to be a Volunteer Marhsall will be sent and asked to fill out a second, two minute questionaire by email. More details on this important position will be included in that email. We ask that Marshalls attend an orientation meeting the week prior to the parade. Tell us about any special event, technical theater, organizational or leadership expereince.
VISUAL ARTS -Puppet Making WORKSHOPS
There will be puppet making workshops on 4 Saturdays in October. Due to their wild popularity, all spots making puppets this year are FULL. Do you want to get an email next August reminding you it is time to sign up?
YES, email me
Puppet Making Workshop are near Rhinebeck, NY (2 hours north of Manhattan) this year. Do you need help getting to the workshops?
Visual Arts Technical Skills
If you are wishing to make puppets, tell us about any relevant special skills or interest you have, if any. NOTE: Let us know about art, craft and building skills in particular.
A Bit More To Go...
Thank you for filling out this form. You can e-mail us with questions if there is anything you need to find out before volunteering). BE SURE TO PUSH SUBMIT AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS FORM!!!! As the Parade approaches, we will send all of our volunteers more detailed information on everything they need to know. For most volunteers, the commitment is usually from 5 PM until about 9 PM on Halloween Night. Puppeteers should wear black, or, if you like, any costume that allows freedom of movement. Marshals can expect to wear a Staff Tee we give you the night of. Again, we can't thank you enough for helping to bring life to the Parade!
