Bye Bye Birdie 2019

Bye Bye Birdie 2019 Parent Volunteer Sign Up

 

Volunteer Positions

We are really looking forward to seeing all of your talented children at auditions this year. We love having a big cast, creating a strong theater community, and our new, enlarged student body gives us that exciting opportunity. 

To support our community this year, as in years past, we are asking one parent or guardian of each student who participates in Bye Bye Birdie to volunteer 2 hours of time to assist with our production. 

Given that we will have more students participating than ever this year, we will be *requiring* that the parent or guardian use the Sign Up Genius to commit to a volunteer slot PRIOR to auditions on September 3rd and 4th. 

If your family has extenuating circumstances that would make volunteering a hardship, we understand and can make accommodations for you. Please contact Karen McCormick directly at [email protected] to address any such issues.

Jobs are listed under either Group A or Group B.   If you sign up to help with a Group A job, your volunteer commitment is fulfilled.    If you prefer less of a leadership role, you need to sign up for 2 jobs from Group B.  (We will contact you with specifics about dates and times.  Parent Producers will be available throughout the process to support your work by sharing their experience over the past two years.)

 

FYI – Students will not be cast in the show without your commitment, so take a look at the following jobs and sign up today.
