UPDATED!!  Individual Costume Fitting Signup Genius:



The 2020 Nutcracker BRAVO Sign Up is now open!

**UPDATE 9/27**  The Props Room is now open.  We are limiting the number of volunteers in the room to two at a time.  You must reserve a time slot via Signup Genius to work on props.   There are half hour time slots available.  Feel free to sign up for back-to-back slots if you would like to volunteer for a block of time.  We will only post a week's worth at a time so that other jobs, such as costume fittings, don't get lost in the shuffle).  If you reserve a time to volunteer, please honor that time.  You may also check with the front desk at any time to inquire if the room is available if you happen to find yourself with free time on your hands while your child is in class.  Questions?  Please text Trish Graditor.

The initial signup only includes two areas of volunteering: COSTUMING and SETS/PROPS.  If you would like to volunteer in either or both areas, please add your name to Sign Up Genius.  This will put you on an email list for the coordinators.  When work is available, they will alert you to head back to Sign Up Genius to volunteer if you're able.  Coordinators will also communicate specifics regarding health and safety protocols for all jobs.  

As a reminder, you do not need to be a sewer to volunteer in COSTUMING!  In addition to seamstresses, we need volunteers who are willing to help return costumes to hangers, take notes, and be a general assistant during fittings.  

In the same regard, you do not need to be skilled in carpentry or art to volunteer with SETS/PROPS.  Volunteers are needed to clean up small props, change batteries in angel trees, and many other simple tasks!  And if you have some muscle to spare,  the large props are bulky and require some heavy lifting to get them in place for touch ups.  

So head to Sign Up Genius via the link below and get your name on a list!  The access code is in your email from Samantha sent on Monday, 9/14.
