While many of the activities and techniques stay largely the same from show to show, we are looking for performers who can make these shows feel customized and special for the participants. Our performers bring an abundant amount of energy and excitement to every performance and facilitate a safe and inclusive space for all participants.

Time Commitment:

Virtual performances are typically held on weekend morning, afternoon and evenings; occasionally we will have weekday performances as well.

Ideal Candidates:

  • You can easily master Zoom technology (i.e. monitoring the chat, spotlighting participants, virtual backgrounds, launching polls, sharing media elements, etc.)
  • You are an expert improviser, able to see something being performed and instantly copy the energy, vibe, and style.
  • You are committed to communication - responding to e-mails in a timely manner, promptness, reviewing materials prior to the show.
  • You are able to modify on the fly to ensure a quality experience for the client. You adapt or switch things up based on feedback from the audience.
  • You are a team player - able to establish an easy rapport with your co-host and the participants. You love to share the spotlight.
  • Bonus points if you are adept in puppetry and/or character-work!
