MHS Boosters contribute their time and talents in a variety of ways. Please fill out our form below to express interest in being involved with Boosters in the coming year! Various volunteer opportunities are explained at the bottom of the page.

A general summary of the help needed appears below. Some categories may not be applicable in the coming year, but we would still like to know of your interest for future years. Please email mhstheatreboosters@gmail.com with any questions!

Costumes

Crew Wednesdays - Teaching a Talent

Coming to crew work sessions (typically on Wednesdays form 4 - 6 pm), and teaching skills beneficial to theatre, such as using power tools, sewing, sound engineering, or painting techniques.

Dance Concessions

Each school year theatre boosters operate concessions during 2 or 3 dance competitions held at the PAC (except 2021, due to construction). Concessions are sold from the PAC office, and typically include hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, candy and beverages. Many volunteers are needed to operate the concession stand during the events. In recent years, this has been our most profitable fundraiser.
