Many hands make light work! We'd love your volunteer assistance in the following ways:


  • Parents Crew (formally Dads crew)  needs your help. If you are interested in some light construction projects or helping out with moving equipment at competitions and performances, please email Phil Prybil  at fharmprybi@aol.com.
  • Costumes - if you are interested in doing laundry after performances (and who isn’t?!?), we need volunteers to take costumes home, launder them, and return them to school on the following Monday so we are able to pack up and get things ready for the next performance. Please contact Liz or Marianne if interested.
  • Hair and Makeup - this committee helps with hair and makeup before performances. If you are interested in assisting in the girls’ homeroom, please contact Jill Perkins at perkins.jill@iowacityschools.org
  • Winter/Spring Show committee - if you are interested in helping with the receptions and publicity for the show fundraisers, this is the spot for you. We have a committee chair, we just need a small group to serve on the committee. Please contact Liz or Marianne if interested.
