Parent Volunteer Committees

I have enjoyed so much getting to work with the awesome EYT parents during the past two summers, and I have learned something:

If you want something done right, ask a parent.


Let's face it; you guys have a HUGE vested interest in our show...

You want your child(ren) to be in the BEST possible show.  

And since you like to hang around where your kids are anyway, you're the perfect candidates to get the jobs done.  Hence the creation of the Parent Volunteer Committee.  This year, I will be selecting a committee chair and committee members for the following eight committees:

Costume Committee - will work directly with the costumer to organize, alter, sew, and scout out costumes according to the master costume design

Construction Committee - will work directly with the production staff to create and install fabulously functional sets and props according to the master set design

Facilities Committee - will work directly with the Empress staff to ensure the building is clean and safe during rehearsals and performances

Supervision Committee - will work directly with Andrea to schedule volunteers to supervise lunches, pick up, and backstage to keep all 70 EYT kids safe

Party Committee - will work directly with the Youth Council to make all their party dreams a reality

Fundraiser Committee - will work directly with Andrea and the Youth Council to organize and run the fundraising car wash(es).  May also develop and implement a pre-sales incentive program

Parades and Events Committee - will work directly with Andrea to make EYT a part of the community summer landscape (organization, communication, publicity, etc)

Appreciation Committee - will work directly with the production staff and the Youth Council to facilitate cast appreciation gifts at the closing night cast party.  May also develop and implement in-workshop incentive programs

You will be able to sign up for a committee as part of this year's registration process.  So start thinking of how to put your talents to use this summer.  Who are we?  EYT... but we're nothing without our EYT parents!!
