WE WILL NEED VOLUNTEERS FOR THE DRESS REHEARSAL AND BOTH SHOWS. NO VOLUNTEER WILL BE REQUIRED FOR THE STAGING AS ALL THE TEACHERS AND SENIOR STUDENTS WILL BE THERE TO HELP WITH THAT REHEARSAL.
If your child is in both shows it is recommended that you volunteer for one show and purchase tickets for the opposite night. If your child is only in one show we can not promise that you will get a clear view of your child from the side of the stage if you choose to volunteer. There is not much room to work with backstage and the curtains may block your view. Also, lining up children for upcoming numbers in the wings and following regulations is our first priority. If you wish to watch them we recommend that you purchase tickets to get the best view.
RESPONSIBILITIES AS A VOLUNTEER:
You must be aware that you are to stay with the group until all students are picked up at the end of the show. If you are volunteering for your own child's class, you will be responsible for the entire group, and not just your child
You must stay in the assigned dressing room provided until the backstage runners come to get you to escort the students to the side of the stage. There will be someone to direct from there as to when the students will move up to the curtains for their dance.
For safety reasons, you must stay back behind the line that is placed on the side of the stage. Dancers could be running on and off the stage and someone could get injured. All rules must be kept, as safety is our first concern.
You will also be responsible for taking the children to the washrooms, making sure all costumes are in order, and that children are kept safe in the dressing room provided.
Always make sure that at least one volunteer remains in the dressing room with students at all times! Feel free to bring books, colouring activities, etc. for the students to keep them occupied.
PLEASE BE SURE TO DOUBLE CHECK THE DOCUMENT 'VOLUNTEER SPACES' TO SEE WHAT VOLUNTEER SPACES ARE NEEDED
A COPY OF YOUR FORM WILL BE SENT TO YOU IMMEDIATELY VIA THE EMAIL THAT YOU PROVIDE.
MARIA DELAHUNTY-O’BRIEN WILL BE IN TOUCH WITHIN A WEEK OR TWO BEFORE THE SHOW TO CONFIRM.
