Mystic Paper Beasts and the Dragon’s Egg are run as a non-profit organization. We depend on your support!  If you would like to provide financial support, donate useful items, or donate time and be a volunteer for the many needs of the Egg, please contact us at

You may donate, or pay your membership, or use fees, via pay pal:, or by cheque to the Mystic Paper Beasts.


Membership and Use Fee


This winter, the Egg has had a number of cancellations of residencies, so we are instituting a new policy.  As you know, we have no outside funding, and operate on a shoestring, so we do rely on memberships, use fees, events, and the MPB performance fees, to just barely make ends meet. 


Thus, we now have a new policy of asking for a $25 non refundable deposit at the time of your approval for the residency,  which you can apply to your use fee, once you are here.  You can fill out the memberships and  forms when you arrive, and pay whatever these are once you are at the egg.   If you end up cancelling, the $25 goes to the Dragon’s Egg.


The deposit should be sent to


Mystic Paper Beasts

8 Hancox Street


Ct. 06378


and the cheque should be written to the Mystic Paper Beasts. 

Please write “deposit” in the subject line…

Thank you so much!

For Individual Artists or Dance/Theatre Companies

We ask that you (artist in residence – individual/group) – and any teacher or workshop presenter – become a member of the Mystic Paper Beasts in order that we can have this remain a community of members (required by the town).   

Membership is annual, and is good for the calendar year.  It is on a sliding scale beginning at $25 for mouse category, and on up to Dragon!  $100 or more, as you can afford.  

If you are a group, e.g. a dance company, the minimum annual membership fee is $20 for each member.   Please have each member of the company fill out the membership forms you will find at the Egg.

This fee is paid once annually, so you may return within the calendar year without paying another membership.  e.g. If you join in January, your membership will be good through December of that year.  If you join in July, your membership will be good through December of that year.  

You can leave this membership at the Egg upon your arrival in an envelop (cash or cheque) addressed to Marya, or you may mail a cheque  to   Marya Ursin, Mystic Paper Beasts, 8 Hancox, Stonington, Ct. 06378,    noting on the cheque the residency name.  The cheque should be made out to the Mystic Paper Beasts.  There are envelops in one of the drawers under the phone for this.  Thank you!

You are asked to leave, additionally, a use fee each time you come to the egg (below).
