Feedback #4 - Community Service Opportunities

I would love to have more community service opportunities related to theater.  The ones offered often interfere with rehearsals, performances, and classes.  Is there a way to do a Sunday-afternoon event with local schools?  Or something else?

"First of all, I am so happy to hear you are interested in theater related community service projects. That is wonderful news! i have tried to create programs for students to get involved in, to become teaching artists and to reach out to the community via the arts and arts education. Unfortunately, since many of the programs are often connected with schools, they have to be done at the time of day the school asks for. This is normally around 3 or 3:30, because these programs are usually considered an after school activity. Hopefully we will be able to come up with new programs in the future that will fit into peoples' schedules better than this. There are other ways to get involved with community service on campus, but these are not theater related projects. If you are interested you can visit the community service office in the basement of Seegers and speak to Beth Halpern. Thank you for your interest and I would be more than happy to speak with you about other opportunities and ways to start up programs for the future."
