Descriptions of volunteer positions:
Remember that each family is required to choose a volunteer position. The volunteer time can be done by parents, grandparents and even older children (with approval- Stage crew does not count).
* IMPORTANT CHANGE*
In an effort to make being a "group leader" not such a time consuming position we will keep our new group leader format. If we can get enough "group leaders" signed up we will split the time between the group leaders. Some will be in change of Dance days, one dress rehearsal and one show night, and the other leaders will be in charge of music days, the other dress rehearsal and the remaining show night.
Please consider being a group leader- these positions are critical to making the show possible.
.Your child will not be fully signed up until you fill out a position on the volunteer form. Please click here to sign up for a position.
