Get on the boat!

Citizens of Earth, it is a well known and little acknowledged fact that volunteers who contribute their blood, sweat, tears, and sanity to project are INVALUABLE RESOURCES. That's just science.

We call upon you to get on the boat! Volunteers and interns of the festival can expect a Fringe Button for access to all special ShenFringe events and galleries, housing if they need it, EVEN COLLEGE CREDIT!

We will need techs, and front of house, and drivers, and gophers, and hospitality, and front of house, and dressers, and cheerleaders, and canvassers.
