Circus Juventas

Thurs 7/27 @ 1pm School Groups

Thank you for volunteering for Nordrsaga: the 2017 Circus Juventas Summer Show. These performances would not go up without your generous help. You can sign up for one shift per show and for as many performances as you would like. Please invite a friend to volunteer to help support the Nordrsaga cast. The "matinee school shows" are shorter than a normal matinee and the audience is made up of school groups.

Some technical volunteer spots (riggers and lighting) require at least one dress rehearsal, three evening or matinee shows or two shorter weekday school matinees. Read descriptions carefully before signing up.  We understand that this is a youth circus but for safety reasons all volunteers must be 18 or older - no exceptions. Wear a black shirt and black pants/shorts/skirt when you volunteer. Do not bring purses or backpacks or anything of value with you; we don't have any place to store them. Do not park in the lot adjacent to Circus Juventas. Allow an extra 10 minutes to find parking and walk to the big top. Check in at the front desk in the Circus Juventas lobby.

If you have any questions contact Becky Amidon, Circus Juventas Volunteer Coordinator, at or 612-868-9661.

Date: 07/27/2017 (Thu.)
