CAMP VOLUNTEER INFORMATION:
Running a theatre camp and putting on a performance requires many people. We are looking for volunteers to assist with one or both camps. We need parents/adults who can help us one day or every day during camp. Volunteers help with kid patrol, costumes, make-up, props, set construction/decorating, stage crew etc. We could use 3 volunteers each day to assist the director(s).
