Crisp, cool air. Vibrant leaves in the trees. October is descending upon us and we at LHPAI are ready for it: we’ll offer a warm and rich evening with Moms Mabley and we need you to help make our fall performances even more welcoming! Twenty-two performances of Hello Darlin’s (and two receptions!) means lots of volunteer opportunities. We begin this week, so sign up soon!
While previews begin this Wednesday (September 25th), our most pressing need is for folks to volunteer during our Opening Night reception, which follows the 7 PM show on Friday (September 27th). Please find more information in our Volunteer Role Description and Assignment pages, and let us know which date you’re available and/or which role you’d like to take on!
Are you a volunteer who enjoys working with volunteers? We’re also looking for an energetic, dedicated, and available (for most – if not all – of the performance run) person to take on House Management duties. Reception support and ushering are also high-priority needs.
If this will be your first time volunteering at LHPAI, please also join us for our Fall Play volunteer orientation on Saturday (September 28th) at noon. We’ll discuss the remainder of the run and our volunteering needs.
It was so good to see you on September 7th! We’re notorious for increasing our numbers – so we’ll especially look forward to at least double the 29 of you who attended Saturday’s inaugural volunteer celebration when we hold our next one… probably in December for a special holidays-themed volunteer celebration. More information soon!
Down with the trees’ leaves and up with the volunteers’ voices! We’d like to include yours in two very important ways:
1) Volunteer Feedback: Help shape the LHPAI volunteer experience by telling us about your past experiences and future expectations. You can fill out our online survey or attend our in-person session later this fall. More information soon!
2) Volunteer Column: Starting with our November/December Volunteer Newsletter, we’ll invite one of you to contribute something that represents your creative side – e.g. a poem or short-story, Q&A interview, or anything else that reveals what you like to do when you’re not volunteering with us! Volunteer (!) to be our first by emailing us!
A gentle reminder that you’re most welcome to volunteer every Tuesday and Wednesday, between 9am and 6pm, to support LHPAI with a variety of operations assignments. Tell your friends too!
