Volunteers

Sign-Up HERE

First of all, thank you so much for sharing your young person with us during this production process.  They are so excited to share their hard work and play with you next week.  We could not do this show without the support of the families, friends, and caregivers of these cast & tech students.  Our show runs with the collective foundation of volunteers.  To put on such a big and amazing show we need volunteer help, such as ushers, merch table attendants, costume/hair and make-up support, as well as backstage monitors.

If you volunteer as an usher, merch table assistant, or elevator/accessibility assistant you receive a free ticket to watch the production.  If you volunteer as a backstage monitor we have a live stream of the production going backstage, so you can view the production as you help.  As an incentive, we would love to offer each of our volunteers a Honk Jr. button and SYT 50th anniversary sticker as well as put your name in an end-of-the-summer drawing for a free School of Theatre & Music/SYT class for the coming year.

COSTUME INFO

It is time to start bringing base costume pieces into rehearsal, and we would be thrilled to get all items to the building by this Friday, June 9!  As you gather your items, please be sure to label each item with your child’s first and last name and put the items in a grocery sack or bag, this includes socks and shoes.  Your child should NOT wear the items to rehearsal. The items will live in a locker/cubby that has been prepped and labeled for them downstairs next to the dressing rooms.  The items will stay at the Arts Center for the rest of rehearsals and performances.  After the last performance, your child should bring their items back home with them.

Make-up and hair items can be brought in next Wednesday, June 14.

Please see the costume information below from Jodie, our costumer.  If you have any specific questions about what to bring, please email Jodie at littlejodie@outlook.com.

Costume Basics
Shoes may be all black, sneakers, or a shoe you like for your character. Most importantly they should be comfortable, safe, and easy to move in.

Personal clothing items may be requested. Items such as jeans, overalls, tights, leggings, socks, and possibly tops. You may request to add or use something of yours in your costume design. We will be pulling lots of items from our shop, using that as our main source but we want to include you and your creativity as well. This also helps to make sure you are comfortable with the fit and fabric used.

All actors – black, comfortable shoes, personal haircare products such as combs, brushes, and products, mascara, foundation, eyeliner, eye shadow, lip color, and applicators. A small bag for storing items too, please.

Quincey and Brooklyn will need shorts and tank tops.

All actors who play geese should bring a base costume of black pants or leggings and a black shirt. Preferably as close to solid black as they can find.

The rest of the cast should be fully costumed but I’d like for them all to wear something under, like a tank top and fitted shorts… something they’ll be covered up by while changing with others.

Please don’t go out and buy anything, we will help find it.
