Urinetown News, 4/25/18

Parent News for Urinetown, the Musical!

1. Most importantly, Mr. Hawk came through his surgery with flying colors and is home in recovery mode. He thanks everyone for their positive thoughts and still has every intention of making it to closing night.
2. Work party this weekend! Students will be working 9-3PM in the theatre on the set and need our help. Bring your construction and painting skills, or lack thereof — we will find work that suits you! Wear your work clothes. Early birds get donuts and coffee!
3. Props — we are in need of the following
Metal executive desk – think military or old office style as shown
Hard sided briefcase
4. After school snacks — students are getting a healthy snack daily, but we’d like to give them some variety with a hot meal on occasion. Are you available to help? Please contact us at info@garfieldstage.org
5. Ticket sales are in full swing. Don’t forget these are reserved seats so get your tickets early for the best seating. Remind your friends, family, co-workers, and others to come to the show as well.
6. Our ad deadline for the playbill is May 1st. Please have your ads turned in to ads@garfieldstage.org by then. Ads received after that date cannot be guaranteed placement. We can help you with layout if needed, just ask!
7. The next meeting of our parent support group, STaGe, is on May 17th at 7PM in the Black Box Theatre. Please join us as we prepare for the final push before opening night!



After School Snacks
Support our after school snack efforts two ways: with your money and your time. Are you available at all during the school day? Help us shop for and stock up the fridge and cupboards with healthy, filling snacks for the performers, crew, and support staff. We could use one more person to help with this!

Donation requested for after school snacks: $40 for performers; $20 for costumers, PR team, and light/sound/running crew; $10 for pit orchestra. Donate via cash or check (made payable to STAGE) to Mr. Hawk, or via PayPal at the link in the sidebar.

Ad Sales
Are you a business owner or do you patronize a business that would like to support Garfield Theatre? We have a great ad opportunity in our musical playbill, which reaches 2500 audience members who come from all over the area. As a parent, you can also place an ad congratulating your student! For more information, contact ads@garfieldstage.org

Front of House Support
As we get closer to the show, we’re going to need volunteers to help provide food to sell at concessions and people to pick up donated coffee each night of the performances. Watch for emails for sign ups!

We also need a few dedicated volunteers to run the box office. It’s not hard, but you should be able to work under a little bit of pressure. We’ll provide full training on how to use our system. Email us at volunteers@garfieldstage.org if you want to learn more!

Other help needed
Want to help with the website, or social media accounts? Take photos? Inventory the costume shop? Hang posters? Source props? Pick up and deliver printed materials? If you’ve got a little time, we’ve got something you can do. Come to our STaGe meetings  or email us at volunteers@garfieldstage.org for more info.


BE SURE WE HAVE YOUR CORRECT EMAIL ADDRESS. Every year we have a couple of parents who end up out of the loop because we don’t have a good email address for them. If you aren’t hearing from us and you can’t find our emails in your junk folder, please send an email to info@garfieldstage.org so we can make sure you’re on the list.
