Parents are key to the success of the Shakespeare Summer Intensive!

There is so much to do in preparation for the performance weekend and extra hands make it all the more smooth. We need your help! Perhaps you have a musical talent, can sew or bake, are a carpenter or videographer, can paint signs or help with stage make-up, back stage or at the concession stand? Concessions Sign-up on parents’ potluck night and count yourself in as part of the valuable crew.

Donations or loans of props and costume pieces need coordinating too. The troupe is in ever need of appropriate footwear. So before you contribute those boots or shoes to the Goodwill, consider if they might fit a Shakespearean theme and one of our young thespians. Perhaps you have old hats, vests or jackets that suit the theme of the production. The company has limited storage, but maintains a small collection of items to reuse.

Making sure the players arrive on time for rehearsals and performances, and also are picked up on time is of the utmost importance. Please check email for changes in the event of bad weather, etc. Then spread the word about the upcoming performance weekend. The actors’ morale gets a huge boost when they step on to the stage in front of a big audience. Thanks for being apart of our theatrical community!
