    Spotlight on Student Volunteers Anna Reimann and Abby Winston

    SUPER-BUSY ERHS THEATER LEADERS ANNA REIMANN AND ABBY WINSTON TOOK TIME TO ANSWER SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS YEAR’S CROP OF LOFTIE VOLUNTEERS.

     Q:  How are Loft students partnering with the the theater programs in local schools?

    Abby:  ERHS theater students volunteer in both elementary and middle schools in District 833. We have worked with Liberty Ridge and Middleton Elementary, and Cottage Grove, Lake, and Woodbury Middle Schools. We do anything from helping with auditions, “kid-wrangling,” and even student directing/choreographing!

    Q:  Where are you volunteering, and in what capacity?

    Anna:  I volunteer as a student director/ choreographer with two good friends from Woodbury High School at Woodbury Middle School. Last year I helped with “Grease” and am helping out with “Beauty and the Beast” junior this year!

    Abby:  I am about to start student directing “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown!” at Lake Middle School! The cast list was just posted last week, so I am excited to get started!

    Q:  What do you enjoy most about your position?

    Anna:  I love the ability to teach others and learn from them at the middle school! They are always a great bunch to work with and really love theater! It is rewarding to be able to be a mentor for them and relate to them through good times and bad, as well as share our experiences and hope to inspire them to do their best as they continue to do theater in high school!

    Abby:  Since I haven’t officially started yet, I don’t know! But just from helping with the auditions, I can tell that the middle school students really appreciate having high school students to guide them and be positive role models. High school theater kids are like celebrities to the middle schoolers!

    THANKS FOR YOUR HARD WORK AND DEDICATION, LOFTIE VOLUNTEERS!
