Stilt Walkers Wanted

Calling all actors, improvisers and performing artists!

Green Fools is a circus and theatre company based in Calgary, Alberta. We have been providing event entertainment for over 30 years including jugglers, magicians and most notably stilt walkers. In recent years we have provided entertainment for organizations like the Wilder Institute/The Calgary Zoo, Alberta Ballet, The City of Calgary and more. We are currently looking to expand our roster of stilt performers.

Our stilt walkers provide interactive entertainment in a variety of characters. The role is physically demanding, stilt sets are 45 minutes long, and we do a maximum of four sets a day per performer.

We are accepting applications for performers interested in learning to stilt walk. We are looking for performers with experience in:

  • Performing
  • Improv
  • Theatrical mask
  • Character work

To apply you DO NOT need stilt walking experience. Training will be provided. What you do need is a love of performing and the ability to create engaging connections through unscripted performance.

Applications will be accepted until October 15, 2022.
