While we are fortunate enough to have a professional production staff, parent volunteers are an essential component of each EDMT show. Both you and your child have roles in the production. For example, a typical EDMT show includes a total of about 1000 hours of volunteer time. This is divided among the families of all cast members.
You may have experienced a volunteer commitment requirement if your child has participated in a sports program. Similarly, by having a performer in a show, you agree to contribute at least 20 hours of your time in any of the areas listed below. Parents work under the guidance of the Show Coordinator or simply a coordinator in each area.
There are a number of ways you can help, from creating sets, to selling advertisements, distributing promotional flyers and show posters, scheduling fund-raising events, monitoring rehearsals or supervising backstage, sewing costumes, among many other roles. We encourage you to consider coordinating a whole area, which will automatically earn your 20 hours.
Please read the examples below and consider where you would like to participate. There will be an opportunity to sign up for various roles online (link sent by your Show Coordinator).
