Spring Shows 2022
Circus Juventas

Purple Show Team 2022

NEW THIS YEAR: Volunteers who will be stationed backstage and riggers must complete a background check by Circus Juventas prior to their shift. When you sign up for you slots, you will be contacted via email about the background check if necessary. ALL volunteers are required to sign a liability form. Forms are available at the front desk to sign and will be emailed to you electronically.

Wear all black and comfort shoes. Volunteers must be 18 or older (16+ for concessions). Kids cannot come with you or wait during your volunteer shift due to capacity restrictions and we need your full attention on the job at hand. Do not bring valuables or handbags with you as there is no where to store them at CJ. Do not store valuables in your car, sadly there have been break-ins.

Please pay attention to the arrival times listed in each description! (The time listed in the date column is not necesarrily correct for every role)

Finally, a big ask: It would be greatly appreciated if you would be willing to sign up for a show that your child is not performing in!

Please review the available slots below and click on the button to sign up. Thank you!

Questions, call Shannon Hartle, Volunteer Coordinator, at (651) 699-8229 ext. 215 or email at [email protected]

As a nonprofit organization, Circus Juventas would simply not be able to do what we do without our volunteers. We are thankful to each and every one of you for the donation of your time.
