Each String and Shadow show takes hundreds of hours of work creating the costumes, masks, puppets, and sets, and our volunteers make it all possible! Our volunteers help us paper-mache, paint, sew, and fulfill various other tasks as we build our giant puppets and sets. We also need volunteers to help out at our yearly summer show, to run the door, merch table, and assist attendees with parking. 


If you would like to join our volunteer list and find out about community work-days and other volunteer opportunities during the build, please fill out this form.


We'd love to have you!


Intern with us!
