Volunteers needed-apply at Hidden City!

 Hidden City

You may have caught word of the month-long event called Hidden City — Peregrine Arts has been planning it for years (literally), and Artblog covered a trial performance at Girard College last May.  Finally, in late May and June, we’ll get to see a slew of site-based works and performances commissioned for normally inaccessible spaces, including abandoned theaters and power plants.

The project is a huge labor of love, and it needs 120 volunteers!  Help is needed each Saturday and Sunday, from 11AM – 7PM, between May 30th – June 28th.  The sites are:

23rd Street Armory                               Disston Saw Works
German Society of Philadelphia        Girard College
Metropolitan Opera House                 Mother Bethel AME Church
Philadelphia Inquirer Building          Royal Theater
Shiloh Baptist Church

…and volunteer tasks include:

• Usher at performances
• Answer questions about your assigned festival site (handouts will be provided)
• Managing visitors at your assigned venue
• Volunteering at a May event in Love Park

All volunteers will receive a deck from the Hidden City Philadelphia card game, an invitation to the volunteer appreciation party, and admission to the performance at their assigned site.  Depending on how many shifts you volunteer for, you may also be eligible for a poster, a ticket to the performance of your choice, and 2 tickets to the June 25 Hidden City Philadelphia soiree.
