Masquerade Volunteer Information
We need you! The Shore Leave Masquerade is always looking for volunteers to help
us with the following jobs:
- Den Mommy
Den Mommies (and Daddies) help out in the Green Room. They will be given a list
of costumes/costumers in their "den" and are responsible for checking them in,
making sure they have everything they need and will escort their den to the
backstage area. If there is a problem with the costumer (who can't see, will
need help getting on/off stage) or with the costume (it won't be able to go
onstage on schedule) the Den Mommie will tell the Green Room Coordinator who
will make sure the proper people know.
- Backstage Brawn
Backstage Brawn help get costumers up on stage. Usually, this means helping
with crowd control backstage and fetching things left onstage after a
presentation. It can also mean physically helping pull awkward costumes up the
steps, or putting up the access ramp. Backstage helpers may also be asked to
run small items like wallets and glasses around to the catchers.
Backstage Brawn should wear black or dark colors.
Catchers line the edge of the stage and stairs. The ones at the edge of the
stairs help costumers down offstage. The ones along the edge make sure that the
costumers do not fall offstage.
Catchers should wear black or dark colors.
Runners escort costumers from the edge of the stage to the doors to the
auditorium. A second set of runners will escort the costumers to the photo
Runners inside the auditorium should wear black or dark colors. Runners
outside the auditorium can wear any color.
To become a volunteer, please sign up at the Masquerade Registration Table at
the bottom of the escalator on Saturday between 10:00am and 3:30pm or before the convention,
contact our Masquerade Director.
(For other jobs at the convention, please check out our
other Volunteer opportunities.)
Duties will be assigned at the technical meeting in the Green Room at 5:30pm.
Working the Masquerade will take approximately 5 to 7 hours, depending on the
job and the size of the show.
