Performers Can Make History

New Haven’s throwing a 375th birthday party—and wants “singers, dancers and other performers” to help.

The party’s scheduled on the Green on Saturday April 27 from noon to 5p.m. The event—a dramatically scaled-down version of the 350th bash that took place there in 1988—marks the founding of New Haven Colony.

The city’s Department of Art, Culture and Tourism is lining up the performers. Each act will get 10 minutes—and must have its own transportation.

“As long as performances are family-friendly almost anything goes,” stated a release issued by the department’s director, Vivian Nabeta.

“We’d love to hear about any creative ideas artists may have for performances or activities that are participatory and will engage and involve the audience,” she is quoted as saying.

The department is also looking for volunteers to help with set-up, break-down, “performer check-ins and coordination,” “art activity assistance<” and “tour guide assistance” at the bash.

If you’re interested, call Kim Futrell at 203-946-7172 or email her .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
