Volunteer Help Needed for the San Francisco Mime Troupe!

The San Francisco Mime Troupe is coming to Portland and volunteers are needed to help with the shows.
Local Progressives -

The Tony Award Winning San Francisco Mime Troupe is a very cool progressive theater group that has been around pleasing audiences for 44 years. And the good news is: they are coming to Portland October 16th, 17th and 18th.

All shows will take place at the Hollywood Theater (4122 NE Sandy Blvd). More information is listed here:  http://www.theportlandalliance.org/events/sanfranmime.html

The shows are a benefit for The Portland Alliance, your independent and progressive monthly news source.

For the Alliance to put on these shows we need help. And when you help you get in free (of course). Here is what we need people to do:

- Set up - this is actually setting up the "set" for the play and will require heavy lifting. Will take place at 2pm on the 16th and this will include not only a free ticket to the show, but a free meal as well. We still have 10 spots open here.
- Reception - There will be a reception with the theater members on the 17th and we need folks to help usher and manage the food at this event. This should be very fun and you'll get to mingle with the actors. We still have 4 spots open here.
- Break down - this is actually breaking down the "set" for the play and will require heavy lifting. This will take place after the final show on the 18th and will start at 9:30 pm. We still have 12 spots here and I will personally buy you a drink after this is over if you volunteer!!
- Hosting - We also are responsible for housing the troupe members - we have 5 more members to find spots for. If you have an extra room with a bed that you are able to spare on the nights of the 15th, 16th, 17th, and 18th, you would be a great help!

I really hope some of you can help - this should be great fun and will help the Alliance all at the same time.

If you would like to help, please contact the alliance at 503-239-4991 or email:  mazza@theportlandalliance.org.

Thanks for your help!
