VOLUNTEERS TO ASSIST WITH PROVIDING DINNER FOR CAST AND CREW DURING TECH REHEARSAL:
We try to provide a hot meal to our actors and crew during their long technical rehearsal day on the Tuesdays before we open each show for anywhere from 20 to 45 people (on Tech Day everyone is pretty tired, and it is a long, tedious day of setting lights, set changes, costume changes, sound levels, and more for all of the actors, designers, directors and crew). We ask volunteers to provide a hot or cold dish – a main meal (such as a hot pot of stew, hot pot of franks and kraut, lasagna, pasta dishes, etc.), side dishes (large salads, veggie platters), desserts (cakes, pies, cookies) and cold drinks (iced tea, lemonade, etc.). We are usually set up at 6pm and we ask the volunteers to assist with set up and clean up after.
