SYT Cinderella Cast Hub 2023

 

Hello and welcome to the Cast Hub!

Great start to rehearsals!


VOLUNTEER SIGN-UP

First and foremost, I would like to thank you in advance for volunteering your time and energy to be a part of our amazing summer theatre community. The Lawrence Arts Center welcomes and encourages parent/guardian volunteers as an important component of our process. We believe that parents enhance the experiences for young actors. Your involvement helps us to maintain a safe, secure, and nurturing environment for all of our performers, technicians, patrons, and staff.

We would really love for some hair & make-up help Wednesday and Thursday from 2-3:30.

Also, each volunteer shift comes w/a free ticket to the show, so let us know.
