It's already that time of year. We need many more people credentialed at the MN State Fair in time for the Soundset Festival.
This is critical because the Fair will only hire people who have completed (the Fair's own yearly) background checks. So even if you are new and deep on the E list, when work calls are going out, having your paperwork completed will vault you ahead of persons on the A list that have not done their paperwork.
Soundset is usually at least a week of work. It's worth it. Get it done! Then you are already signed up for the MN State Fair too!.
You can call Shannon at the MN State Fair and she will mail you the IATSE Local 13 forms to complete. On the application, state that you are looking for 'stagehand' work. And then you can mail them back to start the process. Once your paperwork clears, they will tell you to come in to take an ID photo and then hand you your badge.
Shannon is at 651-288-4395. If you cannot reach her, she would like you to leave your full name and mailing address on her voice mail. Ask for the IATSE Local 13 stagehand application.
"That way you will not have to play phone tag."
