How Do I Get Involved with Theatre Boosters?
There are many ways in which you can specifically help the Theatre Department. The extent and capacity of the support you provide is up to you! Volunteer for a leadership or committee role that caters to your availability. There is a place for everyone that is willing to help!
Attend Theatre Booster meetings – see Calendar for dates
Notify Boosters of any changes to student/parent/guardian email, address, and/or phone numbers by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Depending on your availability, you can either express interest in a leadership role, join a committee under one of the leadership roles, or sign up to volunteer for general needs:
Work the concession or merchandise tables at performances (contact VP of Fundraising)
Distribute posters around town/sell ads for our playbill (contact VP of Show Support)
Share your talents/networking! Do you have skills to put a playbill together or enhance our website? Do you own a catering, printing company, or a business where we can leverage services? We welcome you to volunteer your ideas and offer your services in your area of expertise.
