On the bustling streets of Paris, a revolution is brewing. And so, apparently, is the beer.

Today the world is going to be turned upside down. Today is the day of the Feast of Fools. It is the biggest, brashest, most politically radical party in town. And we have a hunch that you’re going to enjoy it.

The rich will become poor and the poor will become rich. The left will become right and the right will become left. Good will become bad. Day will become night. There’ll be lonely bell ringers with silly names, there’ll be moving gargoyles and pantomime dames. There’ll be dancing goats and drunken clowns, frightened villains and forgotten crowns. There’ll be lights, music, dance, song. Revolution, power, protest...

Ding dong!

We're looking for a team of people to join the sound department as mic fitters/runners and we are accepting applications from anyone with any level of skill.

microphones before the show. You will also be in charge of correctly positioning the cast
members’ microphones and securing them to withstand any choreography routines. You will be

not stay for the entire show.

MIC RUNNERS:
You will be working closely with the Sound Designer and Sound Engineer to set
up, test and fit radio belt-packs to cast members before the show. You will be expected to
