September Volunteer Corner
Parents—why not assume a crucial role in the ERHS theatre family while squeezing in precious minutes bonding with your super-busy-practically-adult-holy-smokes-where-did-the-time-go high school students? We have a huge need for production volunteers when set construction resumes September 17th. It’s so easy. This is all you gotta do: Just Show Up. How awesome is that? NO SPECIAL SKILLS NEEDED. No more special, at any rate, than reminding the students to wear safety glasses and watching over them as they sew, pound, drill, staple, cut, glue, paint, tote, and learn useful, real-life skills. If you’d like to dip a paintbrush or swing a hammer, fantastic, but it’s not required. The fabulous George Juaire, set designer and power-tool whisperer, needs your help weekday evenings (7 p.m. to 9 p.m.) and Saturdays (9 a.m. to 3 p.m.). If you’re a novice, he’ll explain exactly what to do. And he’s super nice—no worries. He’s talented, too—you might learn something. Plus George says cool stuff like, “Remember, it’s a marathon, not a sprint,” so you know your student will learn a life lesson or two. You don’t have to sign up or commit to a certain amount of time—any time you can spare would be great. Just Show Up. High school goes by in a flash. What better way to support your students and spend quality time with them before they leave the nest?
