Volunteer Opportunities

MHS Boosters contribute their time and talents in a variety of ways. A general summary of the help needed appears below. Please email mhstheatreboosters@gmail.com for more information or to volunteer! Attending our booster meetings is also a great way to learn more about what we do and to get involved. Meetings are open to any parent of an MHS Theatre student. Meeting times on our welcome page.

Costumes

Maintaining and sewing show 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. 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.
