Take me last pape, sir?
To help promote the launch of our new print publication at this year’s Art-a-Whirl (May 20-22nd 2022), DISPATCH will set up an old timey newspaper stand outside the Solar Arts building and Indeed Brewing’s Whirlygig. We’re looking to hire some part-time actors to portray “Newsies” in the style of the 1992 movie and hand out free newspapers on the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of the weekend. Each actor will be scheduled for a 3-hour shift in the outdoor setting and have access to the newsstand, waters, and bathrooms inside Solar Arts. Newsie outfits will also be provided.
Payment: $100 per 3-hour shift. Payments in cash at the end of each shift. Tips from passers-by encouraged.
Positions: 2 Newsies per shift
Saturday Shift 1: 1-4 PM
Saturday Shift 2: 4-8 PM
If you want to team up with a friend that's great.
