Percussionist for Theater Production (On Campus)

Looking for a percussionist to create original accompaniment and aid in a production of Shakespeare's Macbeth on Halloween. It's going to be a dark, up close, dangerous, and condensed version of the play that would be greatly accented by a percussive background. Especially hand drums and the like.

Unfortunately I cannot pay you for this because the funding is coming through a University grant and they have rules about paying students. I will buy you food and drink at times though! I'm looking for someone who wants to have some fun in a different context.

Relatively low time commitment.
