Remember that each family with Children in the play is required to give at least 4 hours of Service to the Show.
* IMPORTANT CHANGE*
In an effort to make being a "group leader" not such a time consuming position we are going to try something new this year. 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 Spreadsheet
