Boar's Head "Show & Tell"

May 7, 2017 - 11:30am to 12:30pm

Ever thought about being in the Boar’s Head Festival? Several hundred of your fellow church members join the fun every year. You may have thought about it, but said to yourself, “It’s the same people every year, it would be hard to break in.” Well, that’s not true at all! Yes, there are many who do participate each year, and they do it because they love it. But casting and volunteering backstage is open to all church members, and there are dozens of first-timers every year.

Singles, couples, families, kids … it’s for everyone. Many families with small children start their Boar’s Head experience when the kids are just old enough to be cherubs, and it becomes a family tradition, right up to and even beyond the time the kids go off to college or to seek their fortune. Many parents say it’s one thing in the church other than attending worship that families can do together, year after year with a role for everyone. We encourage you to give it a try.  WARNING: when you participate once, you will be hooked!

At the Show & Tell presentation, veterans and committee chairs will be on hand to tell you what it’s like to serve on the various committees: Cast and Costumes, Staging, Makeup, Props, Cast Management, Ushering, and Reception. You can sign up on the spot for one of these backstage roles for the 2018 festival, or you can find out what’s involved in volunteering for one of the many costumed roles. You don’t need to be an experienced actor to do this. You just have to get dressed in costume, join the procession to the big party the cast portrays in the Festival and have fun! The actual sign-up for costumed roles will not happen until the fall, but you can learn all about it at this presentation and even pre-register if you wish.

We want you to be part of the 51st annual production of the Asylum Hill Congregational Church Boar’s Head and Yule Log Festival on January 5-7 next year. We’re famous! Come along with us. You might even get to see a camel up close!
