MayDay 2018


In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre’s annual MayDay Parade, Ceremony, and Festival has been a vibrant example of art as community building in the Twin Cities area for 44 years. All this takes place because, and only because, hundreds of volunteers pitch in to make it happen. Opportunities abound for individuals and groups to be part of this years fun! All are welcome! Please join us!

If interested please contact vcoordinator@hobt.org.

General Volunteer Opportunities

Main Stage

Get involved in the behind the scenes work that goes into mounting new shows — set building, puppet-making, sewing, ushering, and stage managing.


If you have skills and an interest in community-based programming, long-range planning, budgeting, fund-raising, the legal field, or neighborhood issues, please consider joining our Board of Directors.


Throughout the year, HOBT uses volunteer interns in a variety of capacities. If you have some experience and skills in painting, papier maché, set construction, technical theater, working with children, or are interested in a volunteer arts management internship, please tell us about your interest, background and availability. All of our internships are unpaid (unfortunately).
