The Show Must Go On!!
Parent Volunteers Needed to Shadow Lower Grade Play Lead Team

Our Lower Grade Play for Spring of 2019 is underway! We would like to take this opportunity to prepare for next year, as our current lead team are parents of 3rd graders and will be "aging out" of the Lower Grade Play after this production.

We are looking for a volunteer, or pair of volunteers, that are willing to shadow the current Lower Grade Play lead team, and learn what it takes to coordinate this popular PTO program with our partner, Starting Arts. As a lead or lead team, you are a coordinator and liaison between the Starting Arts Director, the PTO, and the school office. Starting Arts completely covers creative preparation of the kids and stage for the production, runs rehearsals, and manages primary communication with cast parents.

The program runs from January to April, mainly Mondays & Wednesdays, with web marketing starting in the November/December timeframe.

Shadow volunteers would work with the current lead team over the course of this spring's play and cover the following:

  • Contracting and Working with Starting Arts
  • Coordinating Parent Volunteers to staff the various jobs associated with running a successful play
  • Working with the PTO Fine Arts Director - budget, expense reimbursements
  • Working with Vendors - videography & photography vendors, 6th Grade Promotion Committee Concessions

We need at least 1 volunteer parent willing to learn the ropes to keep this program going for our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade actors in 2020 and beyond! Please consider volunteering to shadow today!

Please contact Brooke Schwartz-Miller for more information or to volunteer to shadow.
