During the workshop, students will work with the professional director Chris Wilson so that he can make casting decisions in early January. Student interview forms will be available on the PTA website the last week of October for those few students who have unavoidable conflicts and cannot attend. Those forms must be completed by November 2nd and turned in at the school office.

Parent Volunteers Needed!  We need parent volunteers in a variety of roles, including two production managers, two K Chorus managers, two Set and Costume Crew managers, and 1 Publicity Crew manager.  Please note that students will be exempt from the lottery if his/her parent takes on one of the above significant volunteer roles.  Exempt students will not impact the number of students taken through the lottery.

Parent Producers Needed!  In addition, we are looking for a new parent producer(s) or assistant producer beginning in the school year 2019-20.  Parent(s) willing to take on that role are welcome to shadow produce (without the responsibility) this year.

Please email school-play@jamestownpta.org if you would like to volunteer or have any questions.
