Parents/Guardians: Be a Part of the Play!!


Parent Volunteers are a large part of the play production. Thousands of volunteer hours are needed to create and A+ production.  All those hours come from Adult Volunteers.  There is a volunteer part for every parent/guardian.  The time commitment varies on the availability of the volunteer.
