Nutcracker 2019

2019 PDT Nutcracker

Many hands make for light work!

As specified in your PDT company contract, each parent/guardian must commit to a minimum of four hours or two volunteer shifts per production. There are a multitude of tasks that need your time, talent, and attention throughout the week leading up to our performance weekend. Invite spouses and teen siblings to help out as well. It's truly a great way to get to know each other and build our community! 

 

If you have any questions or need more information, email me at [email protected] or text Rochelle Freeman at 215-475-2941or Shannon Bucko at 215-756-1371.

NOTE: See attached for links to PDT Volunteer Clearances (Backstage Parent Volunteers) and PDT Dancer Contract.
