Welcome to the Monster Troupe 2021 Sign-up!
Our Black Hearts are beating with excitement that you will join our Circus of Monsters and menace the crowds with us at this year’s Portsmouth Halloween Parade!
Call for Monster Troupers!
Come walk, stalk and dance with the Monster Troupe in the Portsmouth Halloween Parade on Sunday, October 31st at 7pm. We are looking for approximately 30 kindred spirits who would like to join one of our Troupe Teams this year to help animate our giant puppets. Aspiring spirits should be physically confident (it’s a 1.1 mile parade route), fun minded, committed adults willing to perform with and join the comradery of the Monster Troupe. The Parade takes place rain or moonshine.
The puppets are simple to operate, reasonably light (many roll) and they will require 2 training sessions (TBD by the individual puppet Teams, at mutually convenient times in the upcoming months). You will learn how to assemble, disassemble, load and operate the giant puppet/monsters in conjunction with the entire Monster Troupe.
Additionally we ask all Teams in the Monster Troupe to attend the Pre-Parade event on Saturday October 23th. (pot luck/BYOB) at that time, we will review the parade logistics, in addition to possibly performing a pre-parade practice (say that three time fast!).
As usual, The Monster Troupers are responsible for providing their own coordinated “costume” in conjunction with the ‘theme” as outlined by the Monster Mistress.
Just fill out our Sign Up Form (click Here!) and we'll be in touch soon!
Please keep in mind that there are a limited number of slots available in the Monster Troupe . We will do our best to accommodate requests for specific teams and positions. Please respond as soon as possible.

The Monster Troupe is a grass roots, community organization of like-minded folks who have joined ranks to participate in howling at the moon, menacing the crowds and creating a spectacle!
We have an especially spooky Monster "Circus" planned this year.
You'll want to be part of the Revelry!
