What’s in it for you?

  • Access to shows (duh)
  • A nice addition of an international organization to your resume
  • Expanding your network with relevant contacts in festival and theater world
  • An Amsterdam Fringe Festival t-shirt and totebag #onwednesdayswewearpink

What do we ask you?

  • A minimum of two shifts (that usually last between four and six hours)
