  • Description


    We have a summertheater in our backyard. It has a rotating seating for 350 viewers. The garden is big, a lot of lawn and flowerbeds. In our theater we have 2 different plays each summer ( together 24 shows), outdoor jooga on mondays on July, mayabe a open night for smoke-sauna, ( We have a regular sauna, smoke sauna, swimming pool), stand-up night and a night for poems and songs. In summer ´19 we try to find a visiting childrens theater. Alltogether we expect to get about 3000 visiters next summer. We need help with garden and some help to put up the theather ( sets etc), maintaining the house, and many odd jobs that just "jump out".
    I also run a daycare center for old people at my house, so at times I´m busy with that. So what I don´t have time to do, will be done by others :)

    we have a big garden, which needs to taken care of ( both lawn and flowerbeds) . We have an open summer theatre, which has two plays that needs setting. It would be good to be able to hold hammer. An artist could paint backsets.
    also a big house needs maintenance, that includes basic cleaning, plus windows, maybe painting, what ever comes up.
